A summer on the run: Youth track and field numbers rise
More than 250 area kids participated in USATF-Maine meet in Winslow on Thursday.


WINSLOW — A group of 11 little boys slapped numbers on their hips, tugged nervously at their shirts and shorts, and gazed out at the track surrounding them with puffed-out chests and false bravado.

All of them standing knee-high to a grasshopper and none of them older than 8-years-old, they were about to run the 400 meters in a meet for the first time. They were part of more than 250 boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 15 competing in a USA Track & Field-Maine Youth Developmental Summer Series meet at Winslow High School on Thursday. Seven area clubs brought athletes to the second of five scheduled meets this summer leading into state qualifying and state championship meets in August.
