Braving the cold
Recent snowfall hasn’t slowed down the Fairfield boys’ and girls’ track teams, which could be found running on the Fairfield High School track Wednesday evening after school. Three lanes all the way around the track, and four down the homestretch, were shoveled to allow for track time. Due to Mother Nature’s bad timing, Wednesday was one of the first opportunities for either team to even practice on the track this season. In the top photo, from left: Fairfield seniors Justin Hammes, Mason Carnahan, Jonny Swanson and Dillon Fry lead a pack of runners Wednesday. The Fairfield boys move to a more comfortable setting today when they take the hour trip to the Demon Indoor at the University of Iowa campus in Iowa City. The meet is the first of the season for the boys.
