Indoor track prepares for January

 

December 6, 2017



Head coach Dan Hansen is excited for the upcoming indoor track season at Green River High School.

The program was on the chopping block earlier this year, along with the wrestling cheer program and spring tennis. The programs were eventually saved by the school district’s board of trustees, something Hansen is grateful for.

Unlike other sports, the indoor track season doesn’t begin until mid-January, with the team’s first meet taking place at Weber State University in Utah. Another difference is the team’s season consists of meets taking place away from Green River. Hansen said the closest meet the team will travel to will be at Weber State.

Returning on the boys’ side this year is Kyle Cacho, who will participate in the long jump, triple jump, the 60 meters and the 200 meters; distance runner Brayden Kovich; and thrower Nick Bolt. For the girls, Lauren Hoyt, who placed at state during the long jump last year, will return to compete in that event as well as the 60 meters. Distance runner Kaisa Arnell also returns to the team. Hansen said other assignments havn’t been determined yet, saying he will have a better idea of where to play his athletes after their second meet.

Hansen said the indoor track team will also have members of the Big Piney team competing for Green River. For the indoor track competitions, schools can join together to build larger, more complete teams. Pig Piney’s indoor track program was recently cut and Hansen said many other schools group together during the season. He said he looks forward to working with the Big Piney competitors.
