On the cover, Wichita State University with Coach Wilson and his crew of top-notch athletes. This month Samantha our lead writer knocks it out of the part for the start of 2018 with research and expertise. Back to the main article about Wichita State University and all that they have to offer. “Wichita’s athletic facilities are second to none, and the track team reaps the benefits. Cessna Stadium houses the outdoor track, along with 30,000 seats for spectators and, every spring, the Kansas High School State Championships.” Coach Pat Wilson knows how to motivate and looks for any athlete that is willing to put the work in for his program. Great read and fun to see an exciting program.
It’s all about the ankles, and Kreager Taber has a fun-filled and inciteful message about the necessity and use of the ankle. “If an athlete injures their ankle by rolling or twisting it, the injury can strain the calf muscles that stabilize their ankle.” Prevention and strength are key, and Kreager has what it takes to get you down the right track when it comes to ankle strengthening and mobility. Check out this read; you will not be disappointed in what you learn. Good Job!
2018 is going to be a big one, so get ready for fun pack year of pole vaulting right around the corner.
