Basically, during the wintertime concerning the high-school sport of indoor track and field, teams and athletes become flexible and take whatever they can get as far as when and where meets and practices are held.
Officially, the sport is indoors during the winter. However, teams pretty much practice outdoors a high percentage of the time, and some meets are held outside, as well. That’s been the case this winter with all the COVID issues.
The athletes adjust and compete and practice where it’s available. If outdoor tracks and jumping and throwing pits are snow covered, again, they adjust. If the temps are in the 20s and the wind is gusting way up there, again, they adjust, dress warmer and keep competing.
The majority of the recent 2022 Liberty District girls and boys indoor high-school championships were held outside on the tracks and in the pits at Wakefield and Washington-Liberty high schools in Arlington.
There were no complaints. The teams and athletes adjusted. They are used to doing that all the time during the so-called indoor track and field season.
