Big Spring High School girls' track coach Nick Roberson believes a window of opportunity is opening for his team.
The Lady Steers will send 10 athletes to the Region I-3A track meet, which starts Monday in Lubbock, and Roberson believes that large number is but a harbinger of things to come for the program.
Seniors Desiree Anderson and Chanvel Cuviello, juniors April Turner, Cerbi Ritchey and Bridgette Tuitt, sophomores Bianca Ryle and Jaycee Williams and freshmen Morgan Seaton, Donisha McGree and Dyrshae Vandervilt will represent BSHS at the regional meet.
FORSAN â Robert Hillger is hoping youth will be served at next week's Region I-2A track meet.
That's because Hillger, the girls' track coach at Forsan High School, will send a team dominated by freshmen â five of the eight team members who qualified for regionals are freshmen.
But just because the team is younger doesn't mean it isn't ready to compete at a high level.
âThe quality here is much deeper than I've ever had,â said Hillger, who is in his sixth year at the helm of the program. âWe don't have a few athletes who contribute â they're all pretty good.â
