In a sport that depends on each meet counting as a possible state qualifying performance, the area track athletes have felt their share of frustration as of late.  The wind, in particular, is a killer for track athletes because their times and distances won’t qualify if it is considered “wind-aided.”  Therefore, it has been nearly three weeks since a full Eads team has competed at a track meet.  This is frustrating to say the least, but Eads head coach Stephanie Bohlander understands that everyone is in the same situation and patience is definitely a virtue at this moment in the season.

On top of the weather, many area track athletes attended the four-day FBLA state convention in Vail so practices and meets have been nearly eliminated up to now.

The very young and inexperienced Eads Eagles had their most successful week thus far in the season as they put the Crowley County boys away on Tuesday defeating the 2A Chargers, 10-5, despite falling behind by three runs early in the game in Ordway.  Eads then came back and hosted two conference games against Cheyenne Wells on Saturday getting the sweep over the Tigers, 15-4 and 14-5.  That housekeeping day late on Saturday helped Eads in a big way stay in contention for a strong conference finish later in the month.

Last May, Jeanette Steerman, daughter of Don and Clea Steerman, graduated from McClave High School as the class Valedictorian.  However, even more impressive, at the graduation ceremony she was presented with her appointment to Naval Academy at Annapolis, an achievement very few people have ever realized.  While in high school Jeanette proved to be that quiet strength that every team needs and coaches loved her as she did the job she was assigned.
