Familiar trio leads boys track teams

Much like in years past, Anderson, Lapel and Pendleton Heights have assembled the largest number of track athletes of the area’s 11 high schools. And, while the remaining teams may struggle to compete from a team standpoint, they will send capable athletes to the line to challenge in individual events.

The common theme expressed by the area coaches was working towards lower running times along with higher throwing and jumping distances from the younger athletes as the season progresses.

The following is a look at area boys tracks teams in advance of Friday's Madison County championships:

Alexandria

Coach: Scott Zent

Letterwinners lost: Cory Allen, Blake Cain, Devin McBride, Craig Doty, Shelby Wallace, Cole Clossure, Matt Doty, Evan Hodges, Derrick Jones, Hunter Montgomery, Jake Thurston, Isaac Walker, Joshua Deutsch, Anthony Thomas

Letterwinners returning: Halen Pruden

Newcomers: Bryan Carter, Chris Condon, Derrick Cook, Noah Cothrum, Daniel Cunningham, Dylan Dowling, Averill Everett, Matt Klenke, Sean Kilgore, Justin Moore, Ellis Munge, Nico Tangermann, Austin Bailey, Christian Brown, Tyler Hoskins, Dylan McClain, Leyton Peavler, Jacob Phelps

Coach’s outlook: “I think we are going to see some improvement over last year in some areas, but we are going to have some issues with experience this year. We have no seniors on our team. We are going to see a lot of (personal records) as the kids grow in the sports. It is going to be an interesting season as these young kids grow into leadership roles and grow as individuals and as athletes.”

Anderson

Coach: Cary House

Letterwinners lost: Jalen Beard, Jaylen Pierce, Dorian Wilson, Coby Dugger, Austin Banister, Matt Harter

Letterwinners returning: Nakosh Chamberlain, Samaj White, Alonzo West, Khalil Williams, Bryant White, Zach Abbott, Jason Kabir, Patrick Cole

Newcomers: Zach Owens, Thomas Wells, Ben Gray, Terrell Tilford, Aubrey Patterson

Coach’s outlook: “I am really optimistic about this year. I have about 50 really talented athletes on the team and every time we practice, every time we have a meet we find a new area that somebody excels in. I think I have one returning upperclassman that scored from last year’s sectional championship team so we graduated an incredible group of seniors. This year most of our points are going to be scored by freshmen and sophomores."
