It’s time to claim spring

Local high schools have had a hit-and-miss affair with the spring sports season as the Kansas weather changes from warm to cold in recent days. April 10 proved to be a good day to start the track and field season as Marion hosted a Central Kansas League Track meet. Pictured at the far left is Hillsboro freshman Carson Linnens show­ing his form in the triple jump. Meanwhile, three 3,200-meter runners close in on the finish line: from left, Audrey Van Zelfden of Remington, Bethany Grimmett of Marion and Millie Sechrist of Hillsboro.
