Benton boys 4x800m relay team poses after placing first place at the MEC Conference Meet.

Benton High School students not only celebrated the last day of school Thursday, but also the send off of the Cardinal Relay Team as they get set to compete in state track and field championships this weekend.

It was a year of tremendous growth for the young Cardinals’ 4x800 relay team consisting of Tabor Bigham, Kruz Bigham, Elliot McCoy and Conor Jones-Taylor, and they’re ready for their moment to shine.
