(Elk Horn) The Exira-EHK Spartans enter year three in their Track and Field program history with a much younger team than they’ve had in the past two seasons. Exira-EHK has just three seniors returning from last year’s Rolling Hills Conference championship squad.
Exira-EHK Track coach Scott Yates says the experience of the teams three seniors, Spencer Smith, Preston Waymire, and Dylan Parker, will pay off this year. Another key leader will be junior Cole Anderson who coach Yates says has run better times in the hurle events that last year’s star Reid Zimmerman did at the same age.
In terms of overall numbers, the Spartans have another big squad out this year which is something that has helped land them back to back conference championships.
The Audubon early bird meet next Tuesday will give Exira-EHK a measuring stick heading into the 2012 season.
