Winder-Barrow High School has a storied history when it comes to its track program.
Even today, athletes qualify every spring for the state meets in Albany and Jefferson. Considering the program’s history, it’s great to see the track at W. Clair Harris Stadium receiving a makeover this summer.
“Getting a new track is something that WBHS was in desperate need of,” said Jennifer Blevins, who helps guide the school’s track program. “The track was worn down to the concrete in several places, the lines were difficult to see, the surface lost its cushioning and many runners were experiencing injuries due to running on such an awkward surface. The high jump area was slick and many jumpers would slip on their approach causing falls and scaring some athletes out of a strong performance.”
