On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the B-UHS boys and girls track teams will be hosting their first meet of the season. This meet will be held at the Buckhannon Upshur High School track at 4 o'clock. Buckhannon Upshur High School, Lewis County High School, and Elkins High School will be the only three schools with teams competing in this meet.
The 4x400 boys team will be returning this year with two of their runners from last year; they are receiving two new runners this year. The team will most likely succeed this season due to last year’s performance. The boys 4x200 will also receive two new runners and keep two runners from last year. They are expected to do well in the upcoming 2016-2017 season.
Andrew Nessleroade, a senior at Buckhannon Upshur High School, carries the boys track team for the 2016-2017 season. He is predicted to win the 400-meter relay at states this year, which will be hosted in Charleston, WV. "I have been competing in the sport I love since the sixth grade. I have dreamt of being a state champion since I started running track," says Andrew.
The track teams are excited to see how their season will panel out throughout the rest of the year.
