ORIGINALLY WRITTEN RAY AND GRACE BRANDT – HILLSBORO
We would like to congratulate the Hillsboro High School track team for the great season they had. It was a lot of fun to see them perform. We went to almost all of the meets they competed in. This included the state meet at Wichita.
We started going to the state meets when Angie Helmer was a track star at Hillsboro. We have been to most of the state meets since then.
Coach Dennis Boldt is right when he says Joe Kleinsasser does not give a true picture of what goes on at a track meet. We do not sit on our hands when there are races being run on the track or when someone is throwing or jumping.
It was exciting to watch the relay teams this year. At a number of meets, both the boys and girls took first in all the relays.
We would often shut down the tractor early so we could get to the meets. We are looking forward to watching the track team compete again next year.
