Team Strengths

The strength of this year’s team is going to be our distance program. We have all of our point scores in the distance events back from last season, and those athletes had an outstanding indoor track season finishing 6th at the Ohio Indoor State Championships. I also look forward to improvements in the throws as we return two regional qualifiers.

Team Weaknesses

If we are going to be competitive this year we will need to find some points in the sprint and jumping events.

League Outlook

The conference will be tough as always. Most teams return strong individual athletes, so I look for depth to be a factor when scoring those important second and third place points to win meets. I look for Marlington, Salem, and West Branch to be to front runners.

Pre-season View of the Louisville Leopards

Last year the Leopards were able to gel at the end of the regular season and finished just 4 points away Beatty's Winter 2015 Grey and Blue Hoodiefrom wining the NBC championship meet. We qualified 6 athletes in 4 events to the regional meet in Austintown. Going into the 2016 season we are struggling to find athletes that want to run track. We are fielding our smallest team since 2000 with only 32 boys. We now offer 4 spring sports (track, baseball, tennis, and lacrosse) that has made it difficult to field competitive teams in all sports and track is suffering the most.
