Looking to rebound from identical 2-4 league seasons, both the Roy-Hart boys and girls track teams are prepping for the upcoming Niagara-Orleans campaign with a good nucleus of veterans.

The boys squad is led by seniors Jacob Fritton (Hurdles, Pole Vault) and Ethan Lindke (Triple Jump), juniors Ozzy Moore (1600, 3000), Aidan Bligh (200, 400), Will Rickard (Hurdles, 800) and sophomore Mark Sanders (100, 200).

The Lady Rams team is anchored by senior Colleen Ulrich (800) and juniors Anna Rickard (1500, 3000), Kali Scharping (Jumps), Kennedy Lang (3000) and Chloe Pilc (Shotput, Discus). Rickard finished second in the 3000 and third in the 1500 at last year’s All-League meet.

The Rams will visit Newfane in the N-O opener on Tuesday.
