The New Hope-Solebury winter track & field team’s first year in existence is well underway, and what a spirited bunch of kids.
New Hope-Solebury already has a cross country team competing during the fall months and traditional track and field team for the spring, but the formation of a winter team essentially allows student athletes to train outdoors to compete against other school districts with the indoor track facilities NH-S lacks.
The co-ed winter team was a rather organic creation, according to NH-S School District Athletic Director Ted Harrington. “The winter team developed through student interest as shown through formation of a club and through surveys done last year,” he said.
This is an article that should be shared with the New Hope Solebury School Board, the majority of whom are set to vote for a new $11-$14 million dollar gym claiming that the present two gyms for the middle school and and one for the high school are not large enough for the 900 HS and MS kids.The Board and their Supt. conveniently forget the fact that even in inclement weather students can use the outside facilities especially the track.
You sprinted up V2 hill, Damn I know cars that can’t make it up that hill in winter. Bravo!
