The Hillsboro Lady Indians track and field team work on improving their art from home during this time of shutdown from the covid-19 pandemic that began effecting our daily lives in early March.
Coach Rob Snavely is coming into his first season as head coach of the Hillsboro Lady Indians girls track and field team after being assistant coach for the past 12 years.
Coach Snavely had been having to work with his girls by phone conversation at this time when he is not allowed to be in contact with his student athletes.
Snavely stated “Our plan of attack has simply been to give as much information to our athletes as possible.”
“Anytime there are updates from the school district or Ohio High School Athletic Association, I pass those along to the athletes on the team. That is really the best that we can do until we are back in school or just find out what will be happening next for us.”
“Coach Molyet and I came up with workouts for the entire team. We split the workouts up between throwers, sprinters, and distance runners.”
“There is some flexibility built in to the workouts. In my latest email I told them that they need to be following the workouts.”
“We may only have a week or so before our first meets. And if that happens, they need to come back in shape. We will be working on jumping, block starts, hand-offs, throwing.”
“We will have to work on a lot of technique and team stuff. If our athletes follow the conditioning plan, they will be ready.” said Coach Rob Snavely
