A new track. A new element to the training program. And more than 25 student athletes trying out for various events in track and field.
Homer High School Head Track Coach Bill Steyer, now in his fifth season with the program, is reaping the benefits of building the track and field program from the ground up — including what is his largest team to date.
Although the track is still covered in snow, the team has already been getting practice time outdoors — which means better conditioning early in the season, says Steyer.
