Tracksters grasp winning season
The miles added up. the practice courses grew longer, and the sweat poured off more ahundantly. And one by one, the track meets became history.
The hurdlers, weightmen. and runners fought off the cold and snow in early season practice to prepare for the indoor meets of early March.
While the guys took to the practices on the all-weather track, the girls tracksters did not just stand on the sidlelines cheering 'hem on. they were out there running along side their male counterparts. They worked just as hard, striving for the edge that eventually took them to a distric championship. On the feet of hurdler Angie Lewis, the endurance of Dawn Bosworth. the speed of Michelle Braud and Rita Jett as well as the support of Coach Ransome. the girls one by one tore down the Big 6 teams. At the WIU meet, the only meet in which they did not place first, they captured a fourth place out of fourty-four teams.
With the tracksters capturing winning records, their seasons ended on high notes. Yet. the season became history and the training for the next season again began.
