Track prepares for upcoming season

Thanks to a little creativity, the track is back in Killdeer.

The track was buried under more than a foot of snow slightly more than a week ago.

Now.

A little creativity and a snow blower has brought the track back, according to coach Andy Murphy.

The coach said the Cowboys will be a little green this year.

“We have 20 high school boys out for track this season.

“Our returning state qualifiers are Kacen Garnter in the 200 m dash (23.32); Dylan Tabor (163’ 6”) in javelin; Jace Andersen (10:42.96) and Owen Duttenhefner (10:55.99) both in the 3200 m run.

“Other boys who we expect to have a big impact this season are Michael Moreno and Tyler Hansen in the throws, Dawson Schneider in the mid-distance events, and Kostner Benz-Weber in the jumps,” the coach said.

“We have a relatively inexperienced team this season. We have a lot of question marks on the track and the field,” he explained.

“An area that will be our strength I believe will be our mid-distance and distance. They are young but saw lots of immediate success towards the end of last season.

The first meet of the season (April 2) has been cancelled.

Our next scheduled meet is Tuesday April 9 in Bowman.
