(Elk Horn) Reigning Rolling Hills Conference Girls track and field champions Exira-EHK are scheduled to start the season Thursday night at Audubon.
The Spartans have a lot of key pieces returning such as Jen Neville and Grace Hoflen. Coach Ross Blake says those two put in a lot of time in the offseason.
Other key returners include Sidney Parker in the long jump. Throwers Rachel Smith and Megan Sontag should score some points plus the majority of their 4X800 meter relay team. Grace and Adriel Hoflen return for that group along with Chansea Nelson.
Coach Blake says the biggest strengths will be in the individual events because their numbers are down from last year. The Spartans have 15 competitors on the team.
