(Greenfield) Practice is underway for the Nodaway Valley boys track season with the first meet looming next week.
A week from Friday will be the first boys track competition of the season for Nodaway Valley. 23 athletes make up the squad led by veteran head coach Darrell Burmeister.
Seniors TJ Bower, Mason Clarke, Caleb Mueller, Zach Brewer, Jayden Erlandson, and Baley Shantz. Coach Burmeister looks for a strong 4X100 and 4X200 meter relay team.
Coach Burmeister says they'll be a balanced team capable of scoring points in a lot of events. He says there are some young runners who can make an impact.
Three state cross country qualifiers will make up the bulk of the distance events. They are all underclassmen with sophomore Heath Downing, plus freshmen Brayten Funke and Shane Breheny.
Nodaway Valley's first meet will be April 4th at Winterset.
