An unfamiliar sound echoed from the stands at Boone on Wednesday as the community witnessed the return of Track and Field to the Reservation. To commemorate the first track meet on Boone’s campus in more than 20 years, the community, local organizations, BHSAA and McCoy Credit Union stood behind the efforts of great visionaries and at 4:27 PM, gentlemen were asked to remove their hats as we honored America with the playing of the National Anthem. On a state-of-the-art rubberized surface, the Reservation welcomed Timber Creek, First Academy and Lake Highland Prep to its inaugural Quad Meet and the cheering began. With the sounds of the event echoing, the gun firing to start races and the buzz of how great the facility looked, the dawn of a new era began.
