Idaho Enterprise


Cortlyn Coleman (1st in 3200m) and Cally Coleman (3rd in 1600m) after the Sugar-Salem track meet

The Malad Track team, like other spring teams, are struggling through the long lasting winter weather to have their spring season.  They have managed to tough out a couple of chilly days on the track, but time and time again, meets have been canceled, postponed and rescheduled.  Things are starting to look more promising as the temps are beginning to rise and the snow is starting to melt away.  And even where it’s not, with the track season quickly slipping away, athletes are just putting on a brave face and racing anyway.

Once again, the MHS team was given the disappointing news that another meet would have to be put off due to snow and facilities not yet ready to host a meet.  West Side was scheduled to host their invitational meet but faced that very problem.  They worked to sort out another solution, hoping they could use the indoor track in Box Elder for their meet.  But another storm in the forecast for the Brigham track teams meant that it would already be in use and West Side would have to cancel.

For one family of runners, bowing out wasn’t in their plans.  When they were told they wouldn’t be able to race at the West Side meet, they looked around for another track meet they could compete in.  Cortlyn, Cally and Colt Coleman made their way up to the Sugar-Salem track meet on Friday, April 7, to run in the mile and two mile racers.  Colt didn’t place in his races but did set new personal records in each event.  The Coleman sisters placed in the top ten in the mile with Cortlyn taking first place in the two mile with a time  of 12:47.

Despite conditions, West Side has committed to hold their meet Tuesday, April 11 and to make the best of the situation.  The MHS track team will compete again on April 12 at the Bonneville Invitational meet and then on Friday for the rescheduled Aberdeen meet.
