Spring in the North Country can bring 30 degrees and sideways sleet or a baking 85 degree heat. On Thursday afternoon, the Bears Track teams sweltered through a four-team dual meet on the Canton Track. Despite the heat, both teams performed well with both teams defeating all other squads. It was a true team victory as the meet was won with the top to bottom strength of both squads. With the victories, Canton Girls Track moves to 4-1 on the season and the Canton Boys Track rolls at 5-0.
