The 2021 Waukon boys track season is being looked to with strong anticipation, as 67 young men from the freshman through senior ranks will be competing for the track and field Tribe this spring. Most of that anticipation stems from the fact that, like every other Iowa high school squad, the Indians were denied their 2020 campaign last spring by the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down all Iowa high schools last spring.

“I feel we may have missed out on a very successful track season last year,” Waukon boys track coach Ted Snitker said. “With what we had coming back and kids that had developed, I think we were ready to do very well. Not having that season, we have kids who didn’t get to see the successes I think our athletes, team and program would have had.”
