The high school track season has been underway with practices since February. In typical Iowa fashion, the past month has been a combination of cold and snow, making practice very difficult. The team has done a lot of conditioning indoors and has ventured to the track as much as possible during the few 50 degree days. But last week marked the beginning of the meet season with an event at Iowa State University's indoor facility. The open meet hosts school from all classes and is a great way to get all athletes ready to compete. The Knights competed in a dozen events to kick start their season. You can view some pictures from the event by going to our Knight Pics website by clicking here.
Track and field is one of Woodward Academy's more accomplished sports. They are defending District Champions and last year qualified for the State Meet in 7 events. This year, State will once again be held at Drake Stadium, May 22-24.
