Boys Track Upcoming Season 2015
This is the 5th year for the boys to be cooped. In that time the boys have had eleven boys earn at least one state medal with two state champions Brady Weinman in the pole vault and Kyle Pierce in the 1,600 meter run. Five relays have been in the top three at the state meet with all three relays placing in 2012. The 2012 team had the highest team finish with a 5th place finish at the state meet. In the 4 years of the coop the boys have finished as district champion once and district runner-up twice. The team has finished in the top 3 at 18 invitationals and has been champion at 9 invitational meets. We have been a team that has excelled in relay running and been competitive at almost all meets we have competed in and have been very close to district champions all years except 2014. We will start next year with Isaak Cole and Chase Forrester as the only returners with state meet experience but will add a group of talented freshmen which should keep us in the competitive mix.
This is my 33 year coaching Track & Field at Arnold 28 years as coach at Arnold and this will be the 5th in the coop. Andy Schwarz takes care of the horizontal jumps and relays and has been and assistant with me for the last 13 years. I coach track because every athlete is an impact athlete we’ll decide in the spring how big the impact will be an if it is a positive or negative.
