Track team tests starting blocks with inter-squad meet
The Chadron State College Cardinal & White Inter-Squad Track Meet takes place today in the Nelson Physical Activity Center.
Field events are scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m., followed by running events at 5:30 p.m.
The Cardinal & White meet is the team’s annual event.
The annual team meet helps prepare the team for upcoming meets this spring.
“This meet is basically for setting the bar, to establish what we got,” Fred Culp, freshman sprinter of Mililani, Hawaii, said. “We’ve got a lot of young talent; I feel that at this point we have what it takes to be the best in the conference.”
The meet prepares the new athletes for how meets are conducted and the procedure of specific.
“The inter-squad track meet helps prepare the track athletes for the upcoming meets in a multitude of ways,” Zach Boslau, junior thrower of Lakewood, Colo., said. “It gets us ready to throw in a competition.”
During this meet, athletes will discover where they stand amongst their teammates.
The coaches have recruited more freshmen this year than in any previous year.
The freshmen are the majority and have proved in past years that a young team sparks a good future for the team in years to come.
The results of the event will determine who will represent the team at their first meet Dec. 10 and 11 when they host the University of Nebraska-Kearney Lopers.
