Caldwell County Schools has announced that the high school track will be closed until further notice for repairs.

After a surge in interest over the last few years, the current Caldwell County track and field roster boasts more than 50 students, several of which qualified for the state competition earlier this month. However, with a track that doesn’t meet the specifications, the team has not been able to host any meets. The School Board voted at the April board meeting to approve funds for resurfacing the track, as well as restoring the long jump and the high jump area. The area will remain closed to complete the renovations quickly in hopes of having the area available in early August.
