(Elk Horn) Practice is underway for the track squad at Exira-EHK.
The boys tracksters have about 22 participants for this year according to head coach Terry Weisenborn. And in that group they have some very good athletes.
Coach Weisenborn lists Drew Peppers and Jake Paulsen as two key leaders. The team has two seniors in Zach Petersen and Joe Harris. Younger runners with an opportunity to contribute include Martin Olsen, Nelson Zach, Brady Hansen and more.
Coach Wisenborn says it’s a little soon to identify what the strengths of this versatile group might be, but says he there are kids who look good in both sprint and distance settings.
The Spartans will participate in the newly formed Rolling Valley Conference which should bring a higher level of competition. Their first meet is one week away at Audubon on April 1st.
