Track and field participants are preparing for their first meet Thursday, March 28 at the Cody High School track.

  Coaches this year for track are Joseph Beaudrie, Buffy Hourt-Allred, Dick Smith, Jeff Williams, and Lindsay Bryce. Jace Jarret ( has run for 3 years) is super excited for track. His favorite thing about track is hanging out with friends at the meets and at practices. Jace does the 100m, 800m, 4×100, 4×200, and high jump. Dick Smith (coached for 4 years) thinks that running is the purest sport and likes watching the kids progress and set goals from the beginning of the year to the end. Dick Smith ran track through high school and college basically, his whole life. Coach Smith is the long distance coach and sometimes coaches relay.


For track, runners run the 100,200, and 400 meters for sprints 800 and 1600 for middle distance and 5,000 and 10,000 for long distance. There are also 4×100, 4×200, and 4×400 relays. For field events, there is the high jump,  long jump, discus, shot put, and javelin. Track and field are one of the oldest sports. Starting in 776 B.C. at the Greece Olympic games.
