The ninth-grade Bears placed second overall at the River City Conference Meet held at Central Arkansas Christian.
The Sylvan Hills Middle School eighth-grade girls took first overall in the middle school division, while the boys took third.
The boys programs are coached by Carl Presley and Chad Collins (SHHS) and Thomas Hagen and Luke Flowers (SHMS). The girls' coaches are Grover Garrison and Ahmann Love (SHHS) and Valery Abernathy and Michelle Muhammad (SHMS).
