Your Track and Field Rocks are the defending state champions and looking to build on its tradition during this 2019 season. If you are at all interested in this sport, it’s not too late to come out for the team! If you are an athlete who plays football, be assured that our program works closely with Coach Snyder and the football program…you can definitely do both as guys like Rondale Moore and James Quick have done before. If you are an athlete who just finished wrestling, swimming, or basketball…we’d love to have you explore your ability to run, throw, jump or vault with us! We will hold an informational meeting tomorrow for all newly interested athletes in Coach Holzknecht’s room, S153. If you are already on the team and making practices, please do not attend…this is only for newly interested athletes. See Coach Holzknecht with any questions.
