Concentrating, being fundamental, and not worrying too much about the anticipated heat. Those are some of the things Greene County head track & field coach Chad Morton wants to see from his athletes tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday, at Drake Stadium in Des Moines for the 2019 Coed State Track & Field Meet. The Rams have nine boys events qualified.
He was asked what’s realistic. “Realistic is just going one event at a time, and taking our time on each jump, each throw, each exchange. We don’t want to overlook things, we want to be prepared. I know unless guys win State titles, they won’t be satisfied, so I don’t have to push them or motivate because they’re already motivated. We want to focus on what going on at that time and do the best we can.”
Raccoon Valley Radio will have State Track & Field updates all three days of competition.
