Today the Big Country Athletic Hall of Fame decided to celebrate spring athletes around the Big Country.
State medalists from around the area were given a ceremony and honored this afternoon.
New Haskell track coach Mindy Myers was also in attendance. She’s the most decorated high school athlete in Texas history. She gave a speech to the athletes and spoke on coming to Haskell.
Mindy Myers said, “It’s a different challenge, but I’m looking forward to it because I didn’t come here to get second place. Coach Burson did outstanding at Haskell, I’ve known here for years and years, she’s built a great program. I’ve been to strength and conditioning several times this summer and those kids are workers and they’re hungry. That’s gonna make my job a tad bit easier. The Big Country is home, this is home for me and our regional track meet all four years that I ran was at McMurry.”
Myers takes over a maidens program that finished second overall in the state meet last year.
