I have a new-found respect for track and field. I inherited a team this year and I am thoroughly enjoying the experience. The children really work hard to perfect their respective crafts. I’m also a photographer and I’ve shot several track events over the years. I guess I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed the sport until now. Some may know that I grew up playing basketball and softball, so this has definitely been an adventure. The student-athletes at Bertie High School are great to work with. They generally have positive attitudes and take themselves seriously when it comes to competition. If you’re a football or basketball buff, try a track meet for a change. I’m sure you will love what you find!
