The Amboy-LaMoille Lady Clippers turned in another superb performance by finishing fourth in the 15-team Oregon Invitational on April 26.
Oregon scored 100 points to edge out Chicago DeLaSalle by one point for the team title. Byron was third with 97 points, A-L scored 56 and Genoa-Kingston had 40.
“This meet really is a dress rehearsal for our conference and sectional meets,” said coach Bob Halberg. “Many of these schools are AA and we were able to compete with them. It was a great day and a great meet for us.”
