Is there a future for indoor track at KGHS?

Foxes qualify for Regional Championship

  While a select few Foxes have made the qualifying cut to advance to the Regional Indoor Championship at the Boo Williams Sports Complex, in Hampton, Virginia, the final Regional slots will be filled this week at the Battlefield District Indoor Championship, at Caroline High School.
Most recently, Ciara Mading qualified in the 3200 and broke a school record with a time of 11:53.14 at the Woodberry Forest Indoor Track meet. Mading’s teammate, Melissa Kniceley also earned a place on the Regional team with a time of 3:19.03, in the 1000, during a meet at the Boo Williams Sports Complex, in Hampton, Virginia.
Also, the 4x200 meter relay team of Zuri Polk, Amethyst Polk, Imani Murray and Alex James qualified for Regionals with a time of 1:52.96. Polk will also compete in the long jump in Regionals. Her leap of 15 feet and three inches put her in the top six athletes headed towards Regionals.
   Last Friday’s meet at King George could have historical importance if the indoor track & field program suffers the domino effect from the present economic nightmare that has already begun to affect many schools in the District with a rumor implicating the possible termination of the program. To date, no decision has been made regarding the fate of the Fox indoor program.
   In the odd chance that the program is cut from the school’s budget, the new King George High School track that was installed a few years ago would constantly serve as a painful reminder of the loss of a great program. “It takes a special kid to get out there everyday and try to run in the cold,” said Fox indoor track & field head coach, Rudy Pekarek. “Winter track athletes are usually mentally tougher than other kids, because they are prone to succeed in adverse conditions—this sport is a character builder.”
   Fox indoor track & field history dates back to 1997, when Jim Moyer developed the program for die-hard track enthusiasts. Since that time, King George has won six District boys titles and one Regional boys championship. Also, the boys program earned runner-up honors during the 1999-2000 winter track season.
   The original team was composed of 20 boys and 11 girls. To date, the team is has 45 active members.
   Due to press deadlines, results of the first part of the Battlefield Indoor Track & Field Championships on Tuesday were not available.
