Indoor boys track has returnees, depth
SoVaNow.com / November 26, 2012The Halifax County High School boys’ indoor track team has several key returnees and good depth.
Varsity football coach Mike Roark is handling the duties for indoor track, which helps him keep tabs on possible gridiron prospects for next fall as well.
Roark has 35 boys out for indoor track, with five to six more expected to join the program after Thanksgiving.
The leading returners are Devan Richardson, 55 Meters, 300 Meters, 800 Relays; Tecquan Hogue, Shot, 800 Relays; Shalar Charleton, Shot; Juan Leon, Long Jump, 300 Meters, 500 Meters, 1600 Relay.
Roark is pleased with the turnout for indoor track.
“We have large numbers for the shot, high jump, long jump, 55 meters, and middle distance runners. Could still use more distance runners,” said Roark.
Roark is still learning everybody’s strengths and weaknesses. He is also working on getting the final makeup of the relay teams.
Roark is working with two assistants, including Mike Lloyd, who had experience coaching at Bluestone. Lloyd is working on the distance events and Corey Jackson is also working on the shot put event as part of indoor track.
The first meet of the season is Dec. 8 in Lynchburg.
