“We have had a great start to the track season.
The kids have been working hard and they are a great group of kids to be around,” shared LHS Head Coach, Josh Bean, this past Sunday afternoon.
“Over half our team is new to High School Track because of the lost season last year, but our kids have been up to the challenge.
The weather has also truly helped us since we have been able to be outside and get to work, too. We have been seeing improvements in all of our kids since the first meet on April 3rd and we are looking for great things from them going forward through the rest of the season.”
