Melcher-Dallas is getting its girls track and field team up to speed this week, hoping to dodge the rain and get in a few good workouts before next week. Saints’ head coach Jim Crozier says the girls’ initial practices have been very basic.
“We try to do some road runs right now and get in a couple miles at night. They’ll also do some core workouts with push-ups, sit-ups and some jump rope,” said Crozier. “We’ll also utilize some jog-sprint pace workouts, just to try and get their legs warmed up and loosened up to try and get any soreness out before we actually get out on the track.”
The Melcher-Dallas girls track and field squad will compete next Monday at the Lamoni Indoor meet before opening their outdoor season the following Thursday in Albia on March 29th.
