On Saturday, Feb. 15th, the DGS girls track & field team opened the 2020 season by competing in a quad meet hosted by Hinsdale Central. Teams from Naperville North and Proviso East rounded out the field. It was a great opportunity to shake off the rust and to start getting back into racing shape.

And the varsity 4x400m relay team of Brenna Cohoon (Sr), Renee Kowalski (So), Rebecca Diddia (Jr), and Erin Reidy (Sr) also placed 1st with a solid time of 4:22.4.
