Page Ten — THE GRYPHON — April 7, 1977 /f "Warn Tourney Held WATER STANDS ON TRACK The drainage of the track presents a difficulty for track participants as well as community members. [Photo by BuUuck] Water Causes Problem The highlight of this year’s baseball season should be the spring baseball tournament, which is sponsored by the Breakfast Optimist Club. The tournament will be held at Tlocky Mount Municipal Stadium Saturday, April 9; Monday, April 11, and Tuesday, April 12. Rocky Mount will be the host team. Eight teams are involved in this the first Break fast Optimist Invitational Baseball Tournament. The tournament is set up with a winner’s bracket and a loser’s bracket. First round games included: Sanders vs North ern Nash at 11:00, Rocky Mount vs Garner at 2:00, Rocky Mount Senior High may have fielded its best track team in years this year. Although the team has had its stand-outs in years past, it has had only a few participants; whereas, this year’s team has many people on it. The many participants on the team may give the Gryphons an edge. The quality of this year’s team deserves a better track to run on. Recently the track at Senior High was repaved. The con tractors who covered the track promised that the track was an all-weather track. However, this promise did not hold water. Some of the people who run track commented that it is a good one to run on. But there is one problem with it. Almost everytime there is a hard rain, the water stands on the all- weather surface. There appears to be a slight problem with drainage on the track surface. Water on the track presents a problem for anyone running on it. Running through water is not at all comfortable and can ruin some shoes. If a participant runs through the puddle at practice, it can slow him down or cause him to slip and fall and injure himself. Not only students use the track at school. Many adults use the track to jog on and keep in shape. Surely something can be done about the drainage problem of the track. Perhaps the school should call on the contractor to resurface the track since the first surface is obviously not all- weather, School officials should not allow the track team to turn into a swim team.
