(Adair) The Adair-Casey boys track and field team is off and running with practice in preparation for the 2012 season.
Head coach John Wolf addresses says the strength’s of this year’s team will be similar to last year. The Bombers return three of the four members from last year’s 4X100 Meter Relay Team that set a new school record and placed 8th at the state meet.
Jordan Wheatley, Clayton Plowman and Traeton Jensen are the returning pieces on the 4X100 as Senior Dallas Wheatley graduated early and won’t be out for track.
Freshman Emitt Wheatley who will likely round out that 4X100 group is a versatile piece for Adair-Casey. Wheatley placed 41st at the state cross country meet this year.
One of the areas of improvement this year should be in the distance races. Emitt Wheatley will run some distance events along with a strong trio of returning pieces with Spencer Rochholz, Gunnar Dinkla, and Alex Umbaugh.
Adair-Casey’s first meet will be at East Union on April 3rd.
