As the local sports calendar flips from winter to spring…many of our local teams are preparing for the track, tennis… golf, and soccer seasons. For the Knoxville boys track and field squad, the recent warm weather has been great for the preseason workouts. Coach Mike Cunningham II says not only recently, but as early as February when workouts began…it was more than ideal to be outside. The Panthers’ first preseason meet is the Little Hawkeye Conference Indoor this Friday in Grinnell. The Panthers first regular season meet is March 27th at Indianola.
