Escalon’s track and field team opened its Trans-Valley League season on Wednesday, March 28 when they hosted “away” at Mountain House. Escalon competed against both Mountain House and Modesto Christian. Escalon is not able to currently host track and field events on campus; when they host an ‘away’ meet they are responsible for administration of the event.
