Over the next couple of months we will be highlighting teams in Western Kansas as the American Implement Team of the Week on their lost seasons this spring due to the Coronavirus. On this weeks edition we go to Garden City, Kansas to catch up with their track and field team.
Coach Name & School: Brian Hill – Garden City High School
Years at School: 3rd as Head Track Coach
What has this entire cancellation of season been like for you?
It has been a helpless feeling and extremely disappointing to see our seniors miss out on an entire season that means so much to them.
What were some key things you were really looking forward to in the 2020 season?
First, it was the last season to coach seniors who have worked their tails off. Second, the majority of our team was going to be young and I was looking forward to watching them improve throughout the season.
Who are some of those key players we should have looked out for this year?
Jeremy Garcia, Ethan Fisher, Kaylee Bridges all seniors and Kristin Roth Sophomore
My focus is on my kids. Making sure they are safe and healthy, then that they have the resources and support they need to continue their education. Their mental and physical health are utmost importance.
As a teacher what has this been like with school?
A big adjustment but like any other adversity in sport, we are adapt and overcome.
Anything else to add?
We thank the doctors, nurses and the entire health care community for their courage. We also thank our administration and teachers in our school district that are working so hard for our kids.
American Implement is a proud supporter of sports coverage in the state of Kansas with Sports in Kansas.
