Leechburg adding track
Leechburg High School has started a track and field club, and the plan is to have athletes compete in individual meets in the indoor and outdoor seasons.
The school board approved the club this week at no cost to the district. The school has not applied to the WPIAL for team membership. The WPIAL’s track season is in the spring, during which Leechburg currently offers only baseball and softball.
The club will be overseen by athletic director Mark Jones and football coach Mark George. Since the district is without a track, the club will explore partnerships with other districts to use their facilities. Ford City is one of them.
The district business office will create a student activity account for fundraising.
