Crusaders train at summer track camp
As we know, competitive sports has become a year round activity for athletes. That is true of those in this week's GICC Crusader track camp run by Doane Tiger track coach Ed Fye.
High Jumper Megan Wardyn will try out for the GICC Crusader track team next year and not only has a great chance to make the squad but to excel thanks to being here in the track and field camp of long time Doane Tiger coach Ed Fye.
"We're leading how to set up our high jump form and how we arch and everything and all the basic techniques to high jumping," said Megan Wardyn.
"It's fun to work with them because you give them a little bit of taste of doing something different and they see some success and it's fun to see their eyes light up and see they can do some things they didn't think they could do before," Coach Ed Fye.
"If I'm a track star I've got to be at this camp righ? Oh yeah, it's really a lot of fun and the coaches help you improve," said Wardyn.
Zachary Brittain came to camp to throw the shotput. This GICC Crusader junior just missed out on a medal at last month's state track and field championship. His goal is simple, get to college and still be throwing.
"I mean, I have the jist of everything I want to do, but just the little things is what's going to project me to another level, Division One or wherever I want to go," said Brittain.
Working on the long jump technique is part of this camp as well and there's no doubt about it, on a sunny summer day this is where they should be.
"It's better than video games and all of that other stuff. It's better than video games, than iPads and TV," said Coach Fye.
