NATCHEZ — The Adams County Christian School Rebel track team got off to a good start at the MAIS Class 2A South State track meet Wednesday, and hope to continue the success Saturday.

The Rebels began their field events Wednesday in which the boys won first place and the girls came in third.

Track coach David King said his athletes have put themselves in good position early in the meet.

“We feel good about where we are,” King said. “The team stays together if they know the field has done a great job going into the running. They know they don’t have to play catch up, so coming out in first place makes our runners feel good.”

King expects his runners to place in the top two in South State this weekend with a close battle against South State host Silliman Institute.

The Rebels are hoping to move on to the state tournament at Jackson Prep Academy May 2.
