Track practice has begun and athletes from Greybull Middle School and Greybull High School are busy preparing for their respective season openers, both of which are scheduled for Saturday, March 23.
The updated track schedules, which were released last week, show the high schoolers opening on their home oval with the Bill Gerrard Memorial Invitational and the middle school kids debuting at a meet in Meeteetse.
The Buffs are scheduled to attend six additional meets — in Basin, Worland, Ethete, Lovell, Thermopolis and Meeteetse — before the Class 2A West Regional in Lander May 10-11 and the State Track and Field Championships May 16-18 in Casper.
The middle school team is scheduled to attend a total of six meets, including its conference meet May 3 in Thermopolis. GMS’s only home meet of the season is scheduled for March 26.
Look for previews of the two track teams in next week’s issue of the Standard.
