Carroll County High School’s track and field team returns five state-qualifiers from last season to this year’s squad: seniors Andrea Hardesty, Devin Gray, Evan Mefford and Dylan Jack and sophomore Taylor Byrd. However, the team overall will be very young and smaller in numbers than usual.
Head coach Joe Creager said he has 35 students signed up so far this year, including three middle school students. Last year, he had 80 students, not including any middle school students. Until this year, the team had increased every year of Creager’s tenure.
