Several Mean Green track and field athletes served as officials for the event in which area Denton ISD students competed in multiple running, jumping and throwing events.

 

Others, such as Montrell Pyron and Byron Washington served as coaches and team coordinators for the nine DISD schools that were represented at Fouts Field.
