WSN track gets fixed

Before, left, and after.

After seven long years, it looks like the W.S. Neal track-and-field team will be able to host a home meet during the 2013 season.
The track was damaged a few years ago by someone driving a construction vehicle over about 10 meters of it. The area was filled with concrete, instead of rubber surfacing, making the track uncertified by the Alabama High School Athletic Association to host home track meets—but that area is now fixed.
“The track is done,” W.S. Neal athletic director Doug Hoehn said Monday. “It just has to be striped now. It has been done for about a month now. We had no control over the weather, but it is done now and it looks good. They did a good job on it. We should be able to host home track meets next season.”
While the track has been out of commission for home track meets, the Eagles have to travel to all their spring meets.
