The Eads girls’ track team traveled to the Rick Hartley Invitational meet in Springfield over the weekend where good, if not breezy, weather conditions prevailed. It was a fast track with a number of notable performances as the youth of the Lady Eagles is starting to blossom into something more. In most events, Eads competed well in this very tough meet placing third out of a 22 team field.
The Eads boys’ track team continues to be plagued with ongoing injuries that have slowed some of their main goals for this years’ track season. Two key runners are still out and it appears it won’t be until at least the start of May before they return---if then. Coach Bohlander continues to approach the boys’ injuries with a very conservative strategy.
