Posted: Wednesday, Mar 6th, 2013

Photo by Jerry Thomposn Last week head track coach Ricky Knutson welcomed a very large group of boys and girls for the 2013 season.

The first track meet is still over two weeks away (March), but as of last Wednesday almost 100 boys and girls have signed up for the high school track teams.

The girls had 35 while the boys were at 57 and expecting a few more to come out. Head coach Ricky Knutson is very happy to see an increase in numbers of athletes from last year on both squads.

The breakdown in classes for the boys so far is: 21 freshmen, 12 sophomores, 11 juniors and 13 seniors. For the girls it was: 10 freshmen, eight sophomores,10 juniors and seven seniors.

Softball and baseball began over a week earlier and both had an initial turnout of about 25 players each. So, both sports should be able to field both varsity and junior varsity teams.
