But to go from individual placers to a high finish as a team, Carney said, “we just don’t have that depth. You have to be able to score somewhere in all the events.”
Because basketball and powerlifting prevented many of Carney’s track athletes from coming out before this week, McAlester withdrew from Friday’s meet in Skiatook. The Buffs begin their season this Friday in Glenpool.
With Hook Eales Stadium’s track now ready for everyday use, McAlester will also host four track meets this season: a fifth- and sixth-grade meet April 8; a varsity meet April 17; a seventh- and eighth-grade meet April 21; and the Organization of Rural elementary Schools state meet in late April.
