Not being able to get on an actual track surface has not stopped the Starkville High track and field team from season preparations.
â€śWe are getting a new track; therefore, we havenâ€™t really been able to practice on the track,â€ť Yellowjackets coach Caroline Woomer said. â€śWe have been practicing everywhere from football field to grass. We are going to be able to get on track maybe twice a week, but we have still been working really hard since January and a lot of kids have come a long way. Coach (Steven) Griffin is also a demanding coach so the kids have really been working hard.â€ť
Starkville put all its hard work to the test this past weekend whenYellowjackets traveled to Oxford for their third outdoor meet of the season. While it is still early on, Woomer is very encouraged as just about everyone who stepped on the track or field set a new personal record.
