Area track and field athletes (as well as softball, baseball and tennis players) jumped in to their seasons last week. Pictured is Grangeville’s Madison Brown, who finished in the top seven in both long jump and triple jump at state as a freshman last year. She covered a meet’s best 32 feet, 5.5 inches in the triple jump March 18 at Kamiah – a bit short of her personal best. The Bulldogs are on spring break this week; after they return, they’ll have about seven weeks to tune up for state qualification at the Kootenai High School regional meet.
