Light turnout for WIHS boys track; girls have 20

Mar 26, 2013 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer

A light turnout for the Wyoming Indian boys this season puts just six athletes in the familiar red, white and blue uniform for venerable head coach Chico Her Many Horses this season. For the girls, 20 athletes take the track for coach Aleta Moss.

Defending state champion 1600-meter runner Alvin Spoonhunter paces the Chief boys, along with junior middle-distance runner Keegan Her Many Horses.Wyoming Indian is known for its 4x800-meter relay team, but that could be in jeopardy this season with just six athletes on the track by the school's deadline to participate.

"We'll find a way to get a 4x800-meter relay together," Coach Her Many Horses said. "We have two more boys without enough practices to compete yet."

The girls are led by sprinter Jasmine McGill and distance runner Loveeda White. With most of the 20 girls out this season in the freshman class, there will be a lot of adjusting and learning taking place on the newly reconstructed track at Ethete.

Her Many Horses and Moss are assisted by Tom Rogers and Taylor Her Many Horses.

Wyoming Indian opens the season this week at Pavillionin the Wind River Invitational.
