Mother Nature finally relaxed her grip on winter long enough for the Newcastle Dogies to have a perfect day for a track meet last Friday in Wright, and one of them even doubled-up and competed in another in Casper on the same day. The members of the team took full advantage of warm temperatures and light wind to drop time and increase distances.
“Warm weather brings out the good marks,” exclaimed head coach Chad Ostenson. “It was finally a beautiful day, which had the kids running and competing hard. They felt good, and it was probably the first time they’ve felt that way all year.”
The veracity of Ostenson’s claim is not hard to find as a Dogie was in the top six finishers in 16 events on the day.
