First of all, it's his first as the head coach after several seasons as an assis- tant. Secondly, SHS's track teams have the opportunity to practice on the school's state-of-the-art track around the Pioneer Stadium football field. The much-needed new track facility is as good as advertised. "We have been practicing in the new stadium and there is no comparison to the old track at the high school," coach Warwick said.

There are some things we are still working on but hopefully we can start host- ing meets next season. "If you ever go out to the track during fourth period it looks like an ant hill. Boys' soccer is on one end, girls' soccer on the other with the track kids running round the field and you have the off-season (football) kids running in the bleachers," he said. "There is not one inch of the facility not being used by Stillwater kids. "The old track was used sparingly by track because of the condition of the track surface. It was worn down and caused most of the ath- letes to develop shin splints after running on it. Also, the old track surface was miss- ing surface in many spots as well as the runways for the jumping events." Warwick said the num- bers for the track teams have increased this season and he believes the new track facility has enticed more students to come out for track. Stillwater's track teams return to action today in the Skiatook Relays. The meet begins at 4 p.m. "We will be taking a full team to Skiatook," Warwick noted. "It's called "under the lights" because most of the meet is run after the sun has gone down. In addition they run several unique relays and run off the field events in a relay format, which means they add up the three best throws or jumps for a combined team score." Stillwater has had several impressive perfor- mances this season, led by junior Lady Pioneer thrower April Argo, who carries an undefeated record into today's meet at Skiatook. "April has done an amazing job this year," said coach Warwick. "She was the state runner-up last year in the shot as a sophomore. This year she has won every meet thus far. She also has the farthest throw in the state this year at 39-8." After today's meet, SHS's track teams will compete in the Ponca City meet on Tuesday, April 13.
