The Lincoln County High School track season had arrived. 

However, the NIAA has now suspended all sports to try and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“I was really disappointed. After the success of the first track meet I was excited to see what our team could do and see how much we could improve,” Abby Mathews said about the suspension. 

Zile added, “I was sad because I like the track meets and the environment of it all, and I felt bad for the seniors because I know they really enjoyed it and they don’t get to finish out the season.”
