Track athletes compete at A&M indoor meet
Fredericksburg High School athletes competed at the Texas A&M University Indoor High School Track Invitational on Friday and Saturday in their first meet of the season for returning lettermen.
“Not all of our lettermen from last year competed, since many are currently involved in other sports or stock shows, which were also having events this past weekend,” said coach Dan Aldrich. “A few of the kids entered on their own as unattached, but still represented our school in uniform.”
The goal for this meet, Aldrich said, was to enjoy the opportunity to compete on what he described as “the fastest indoor track facility in the nation” and to see the best competition the state has to offer right now.
All athletes competed together in divisions regardless of their UIL classification (1-5A). The meet was hosted by Texas A&M University and since it was not an official UIL-sponsored event, many athletes represented club teams or competed as individuals.
The indoor meet was open to any high school athlete in the nation. Fredericksburg participated as a school for its returning lettermen only from last season. It does count as FHS’ first official varsity meet of the season.
