Scheduling challenges leave MHS track team untested


Last week, the Marion High track squad’s planned trip to Smoky Valley was thwarted by rain and snow.

Weather has not been kind to the Warriors this spring. As a result, the team has yet to get a clear look at how it stacks up against the competition.

But a full calendar over the next two weeks will give the team an opportunity for self-assessment.

“We have had some very good performances so far, but we just have not had the weather to really see where we are at as a team,” coach Grant Thierolf said.

“We will know much more about our capabilites and what we can do after the next two weeks.”

On Monday and Tuesday nights, the Warriors were set to run Marion Relays and the Berean Quint on Thursday.

On Friday the team will split off a group of nine girls to participate at the KU Relays.

The rest of the girls will travel to Halstead along with the boys to compete at the Conrad Nightin­gale Invitational.

The Warriors will also be in action on April 24 at home and at Hillsboro on April 27.
