By Lizeth Meza

Spring is here, even though it doesn’t seem Mother Nature knows it. In spite of this, Satanta Junior High Track athletes have begun their preparation for track and field season. Satanta Junior High Track practice began March 6; with 45 kids out this year, coaches Eli Applegate and Karen Burrows are looking forward to a great season. Two of the scheduled seven meets will take place here in Satanta. Head coach Eli Applegate says, “I am looking forward to having two track meets at home this year.  With the number of athletes participating this season, we should be able to do some great things.” Unfortunately, the first two meets for the Satanta Junior High Track at South Gray and Hodgeman County were cancelled due to weather.
