The Knoxville boys track and field squad travels to Eddyville tonight for the Rocket Relays. While only winning one meet this season, the Panthers have managed to stay very competitive with the top teams in the area. Coach Mike Cunningham II says while there are no superstars in their top 20 athletes, he says they do have solid kids in a number of different events.

What has also helped is getting a few kids back that started the season on the injured list. One runner Cunningham highlights is Blake Wyatt, who suffered a complete ACL tear late in the football season last fall, and has come back to post the fourth best time in the Little Hawkeye Conference in the 400 Meter Dash and the fifth best time in the 800 Meter Run this season.
