The Bethel girls, coming off a strong indoor track campaign where they claimed the Group AAA team title as well as had state champions among their relays and individuals, will get their first quality meet of the season in at the Mobile Meet of Champions in Mobile, Alabama this weekend. The Mobile meet is traditionally one of the stronger meets in the southeast as it garners not only the best athletes in Alabama, but talented athletes from all over the region.
