With numerous young “veterans” who have been stalwarts of the Weatherford-based Mach I Track Club for several years, the team reached the halfway mark of its schedule this weekend, running in the Hallmark meet at Herman E. Clark Stadium in Fort Worth.
Ranging in age from 8-years-old to 18, the club has become a summer tradition for well over two decades. After finishing out its regular season of track meets, qualifying meets will begin.
Springtown High School will host the USA Track & Field Association Meet June 19-21, followed by the regional qualifying meet. Coach Lupe Torres said Mach I, as well as other track clubs around the state, are extra excited about this year’s U.S. Junior Olympics Meet, as it will be held in Texas, at Humble’s Turner Stadium.
The national meet will take place July 21-27.
