Sulphur Springs track teams want to continue their success when they trek to Sam Parker Field for the Tiger Relays Friday in Mount Pleasant.
The Lady Cats and Wildcats both took second place in varsity competition in the recent Lindale Blackberry Relays.
“I was encouraged with our overall performance as a team. We are continuing to make improvements in the field events. We still have some pieces to sort out in the puzzle. Friday we are looking to continue making those steps in the right direction,” said Matt Young track coach. “It is a difficult field of teams and points will be scarce, but we are looking for those improvements. We will be without the baseball and soccer players but are looking for other runners to step in and perform.”
Teams slated to be in the field at Sulphur Springs, Mount Pleasant, Texas High, Atlanta, Royse City, Gladewater, Paris and Liberty-Eylau (girls).
Coach Triston Abron said, “Friday should be a pretty fast meet. We will see three teams from the district plus one school from our region. It will give us a good idea of times and distances we will be competing with. I expect for us to improve everytime we compete so there will be no changes.”
Action will be held in varsity boys and girls and JV boys divisions.
The field events will begin at 2:30 p.m.
Schedule of events includes:
Pole vault, shot put, discus, high jump, long jump and triple jump.
The running events start with the 3,200 meter run at 3:30 p.m.
At 5 p.m., the shot/disc girl relay will be held, followed by big man relay, 400-meter relay, 800-meter run, 100-meter hurdles, 110-meter hurdles, 100-meter dash, 800-meter relay, 400-meter dash, 300-meter hurdles, 200-meter dash, 1,600-meter run and 1,600-meter relay.
