Copperas Cove Summer Track makes debut

The Copperas Cove summer track season officially got underway on Monday, a week after it was set to begin, on a brand new track surface at BulldawgStadium. Over 270 kids participated in the opening meet on the brand new Bulldawg track. “Overall, I thought it was a fantastic start,” said summer track head coach Keith Stifflemire. “Of course, we’ll get better as the summer goes on.” The first meet didn’t go as smoothly as coach Stifflemire and the staff would have liked, but that’s to be expected when you’re without facilities to practice and compete on. A new track surface was being installed at Bulldawg Stadium, forcingthe first few practices to  be held on the grassy fieldsat the high school’s athletic  annex.
