Congratulations to all the 2016-2017 members the Monroe-Woodbury Varsity Girls Track and Field on their fourth consecutive O.C.I.A.A. Championship win on January 27 at West Point. This marks the team’s sixth championship win in the last eight years.
The Lady Crusaders held off a tough and inspired Goshen High School team, who scored 91 points to Monroe-Woodbury’s 115 points.
