OAKLAND, Ill. (WCIA) — Our Town’s track team has to be creative when it comes to training.
There are almost 50 kids who run track at Oakland High School, but the track at the school is dirt, so kids have to find other places to practice.
Oftentimes, you can see them running down the streets or even the hallways of the school. Students say it can be challenging, but a pair of siblings say they make it work because they love the sport.
The team has places several times over the years at state competitions.
Good news could be on the way for the team. This month, the school board is discussing the cost of replacing the track.
