and studentteacher Wilkins will next face off with Alarno Heights Middle School on April 21 Take heed to those wacky high school track high jinks Leave it to some mil ers at the track to remind us that humor has its place in high school sports Every now and then it is refreshing to know that kids will be kids and winning isnt m everything On Saturday at the Uni com Relays the entire field of runners in the boys 1600 meter run got together before the race and decided they were going to lighten up an otherwise drab final event The prank was goodnatured and falling a full week after April Fools Day it no doubt caught just about everyone at New Braunfels High School Stadium off guard As the starting gun sounded the runners did an aboutface and boiled the wrong way car Thomas Godley rying on in a counterclockwise direction around the track The crowd watched in bewilderment The pack kept up a fierce pace despite several more rounds being fired from the starters gun Fellow tracksters cheered on their teammates and before long even parents and some coaches had to smile at the shenanigans Yes there were some who failed to find the humor but when the race ended no harm was done and people had a good time talking about it Coaches at the meet who have been around track for three decades said they had never seen anything like it If by chance someone had a video camera going the film could be worth a price on a sports bloopers segment somewhere As exacted all lie runners were disqualified They knew the consequences going in but werent too concerned because as one NRHS runner in the heat put it the day was almost over and everyone was losing interest We felt like it was a good time to liven things Many of the runners were seniors in their final meet before district which explains plen ty Still it takes a spirited dedication to good oldfashioned high school high jinks to pull off a caper of this caliber In fact it says a great deal about these teenagers sense of unity that each runner fol lowed through with the prank Just think one guy could have bailed out and ran it the right way He may not have been popular with the other runners but he could have taken the gold and scored some points for his cam The University Interscholastic League would have had a fun time finding that one in the rule books After the race a few runners admitted they werent sure at first if they would go along with the antics Maybe the peer pressure was stronger than the fear of authority Either way no one broke the prerace pact which in some cases was made between athletes from rival schools Put a group of grownups in a similar scenario and you probably get a few strike breakers In reality the biggest reason the runners car ried out the prank probably had more to do with pure amusement At times we just need to step back and laugh at ourselves The outlook can be taken to heart by par ents coaches fans and especially sportswriters who tend to get caught up in the seriousness of high school athletics We sometimes forget these are young people going through some fun years in their lives Its good to know they can set us straight every now and then Thomas Godley is sports editor for the Her Here we go again National Little League begins fresh season with opening ceremonies From staff reports Local parents coaches and fans gathered at the Optimist
