With the beginning of the season plagued by bad weather, the boys track team was eager to compete and get marks. The season started with the annual UNK indoor meet which allowed a lot of the upperclassmen to compete and see where they stand.

The boys competed well and earned a second overall placing.

 Going outside would prove to be a different beast. The boys traveled to Hastings for the Tiger Track Meet. Personal bests were set all around and some freshmen even earned their first marks for the year.

Placers included: 4th by Aaron Drews in the 110 hurdles and 1st in the 300 hurdles, 4th by Tyler Peterson in the 1600m and 5th in the 800m, 6th by Jacob Drain in the 200m, 2nd by Caden Erickson in the 3200m, 2nd by Cole Watts in discus and 7th in the shot put, 4th in the 4×8, 3rd in the 4×1, 6th in the 4×4.
