Hawk runners ready to get outdoors
The Lynnville-Sully boys track team will head to Belle Plaine on Thursday to kick off its outdoor season. And if you ask coach Mike Parkinson, it couldn’t come soon enough.
“Our practices are going well. The seniors are working hard. Mostly we’re just ready to get outdoors. We are going a little stir crazy being stuck inside all the time,” Parkinson said with a chuckle. “Our guys want to get outside and run, and I think when that happens, we’ll really begin to show our best.”
It’s clear that Parkinson and his team are looking forward to breathing some fresh air. Although, that is not to say the indoor season has been particularly unkind to the Hawks. Actually it’s quite the contrary. At the Central College invite in Pella on March 17, the Hawks tallied up plenty of top-15 finishes, including a fifth overall finish by junior Meliek Meyer in the 55-meter dash and an 11th-place finish by senior Brady Van Wyk in the high jump.
