Before summer comes spring, and for many of Madison County’s youth, that means sports. March 13 marked the beginning of track and golf practices, and many students and coaches around the county are ready to get back in action.
Bill Yeager always dreamed of being a Bobcat. And now, that dream has quickly become a reality.
“To finally achieve that, I still can’t believe it,” Yeager said. “It’s amazing.”
Yeager got the call from Montana State’s track coach Dale Kennedy the day he was planning to sign on with Montana Tech.
Wendy McKitrick of Ennis was selected as class C boys’ track and field coach of the year by members of the Montana Coaches Association.
Wrzesinski, along with younger sister Wrenzi, dominated the class C track season for the Ennis Mustangs – both sprinted their way to top finishes at the divisional and state competitions in Missoula.
Madison County athletes were back on the track in Missoula last weekend for the state class C track meet. Returning champs, the Ennis Mustang boys’ team, was able to once again secure the state team title and take home a plaque, thanks to speedy junior Cleet Wrzensinski, who placed in six events and broke several state records.
With school winding down for all Madison County students, four schools have already hosted elementary track and field days – Twin Bridges, Alder, Harrison and Ennis.
Spring is just around the corner and with that comes spring sports in Madison County. Practices started this week as student athletes took to the track and the golfing greens – whether it is golf you are interested in or track and field, here is what you can expect this season.
On May 22 and 23, Madison County athletes traveled to Laurel for state track. Ennis boys take first as a team, multiple athletes place in individual events.
