Kaneland boys track embraces outdoor season

Kaneland boys track coach Eric Baron has been waiting and waiting to get the Knights outdoors.

The Knights dominated last month's Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference indoor meet, but Baron said many of his athletes have struggled to keep their form during recent cold weather.

“We were pleased with our performances in meets, but the weather has been a struggle for us,” Baron said. “We’re struggling a little bit. We’re not really at the level we want to be at.”

Baron hopes the weather cooperates in the upcoming weeks, which will give Kaneland an opportunity to work on technique in the field events and see what some of its younger athletes can do when given a chance in the lineup.
