SOMERS, N.Y. – The Tuskers track and field team is taking the cancellation of the spring season in stride.

Dozens of varsity athletes from Somers and Arlington competed last week in the second “Tuskers Quarantine Invitational,” a virtual meet featuring more than a dozen running, strength and throwing events.

Runners completed the events on their own and submitted the results to their coaches.
