Preps post-season: age is showing

You know you’re getting old when you can remember standing in the middle of a track or along cross country courses watching the Weitz family run -  not only last fall, but 35-plus years ago.

Lynn Weitz was the first, a scrawny youngster who, you could tell, was going to be something someday, and he did, winning a state title. His sisters, Diane, Jan and Judy were all accomplished distance runners - top five state placers in track and cross country with team and individual titles in their scrapbooks.

Now there’s Lynn’s son Nathan, another wisp of a youngster with the unmistakeable gait of a star. Already, the Shadle Park freshman is near his dad’s career marks and must outrun North Central’s standouts and Allan Schroeder of Mt. Spokane or meet state standards to qualify for state.

Yes it’s that time of the year. State qualifying is upon us this week, state is next and another school year has flown by.
