Photos: Falcons compete in state meet / Track

I was on vacation while South Whidbey High School competed in the state track meet May 23-25. While I can publish stories online while I am out of the office, I can’t process photos. Not to let the photo work of Karen Swegler go to waste, here are some of the photos she took for the Record at the state meet.
