The community of Willmar has a lot to be proud of not only regarding the athleticism of their track and field athletes but the character nestled in those same young women.
I was fortunate to have been asked to run the pole vault event at the Alexandria Area High School track meet on Tuesday, May 17.
It isn’t often these days when a young adult takes the time to come over and thank you for volunteering your time to run an event, but in the case of the Willmar girls vaulters, that is exactly the case.
There is no better feeling than knowing that our youth still uphold good character and moral values in today’s society. Sometimes athletes are viewed only for what they do on the field, but your Willmar ladies showed so much more off the field.
Thank you and congratulations not only to you but your coaches who have obviously left a mark on your life. Way to go, Willmar.
