EHS thinclads 'start over' at Bethany meet

ENID, Okla. — Enid’s track teams begin their “third season’’ today at the Bethany Invitational, the first meet after spring break.

“We’re pretty much starting over,’’ said EHS coach Joe Miranov about his team’s first meet since March 15. “This will give us a chance to establish some good times and kick start us for the rest of the season.’’

Miranov said several of the sprinters and long distance runners called coaches to request workouts during spring break last week.

“That doesn’t happen too often,’’ Miranov said. “I think it shows those kids are motivated and want to do well. We’ll see what kind of shape we’re in.’’

The Pacers and Plainsmen will be taking a junior varsity team for the first time this season.

“This is a good opportunity for those kids,’’ Miranov said. “Some of them are on the borderline of making varsity.’’

Temperatures are expected to be in the low 60s to high 70s.

“That should help us out a lot,’’ Miranov said “The kids won’t have any excuses if they don’t do well.’’

Around 25 teams are expected to compete.

Alex Lofton is coming off a two-gold medal performance at Norman (400 medals and 1,600 relay). Macy Adams won the girls’ high jump with a leap of five feet.
