Behind returning state 800-meter qualifier Bill Shuster, the Nicolet boys track team will look to develop more depth to be more competitive this spring.
"We've got a lot of young, hard-working kids who want to help the team anyway they can," said second-year head coach Jeff Houck. "Hopefully several of them will be able to help out on varsity by the end of the season."
The Knights were second in the John Bowen South Division Invite on March 20 and now will look forward to the North Shore Conference Indoor at Homestead at 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 4.
Shuster is a senior this season. Another senior who will help out will be hurdler and relay runner Kermit McClenden. Impact juniors include sprinter and middle distance runner Markel McKinley and middle distance runner Mack Koster.
Houck will be assisted by long-time former Knight head coach Dan Knoebel, who spent the last two years teaching overseas.
"A lot of the younger kids are coming along better than I thought they would," Houck said.
