Video: Mean Green Track Practice Update
The Track Team Focuses On Power and Strength For the Upcoming Season
The Mean Green track and field team has already adopted a rigorous practice schedule, even though their season does not start until January.
"We are particularly excited about getting started on the track," said Head Track and Field Coach Carl Sheffield. "We have an outstanding group of newcomers and freshmen. Our goal this fall is to improve the level of training by increasing the quality of our effort and hard work."
"Emphasis on technique, power/strength development and movement adequacy are at the top of our training goals among our coaches," said Sheffield. North Texas track has been working hard on and off the field to ensure that they are not only great athletes, but great students as well.
"Continuing the culture shift to higher expectations in the classroom and on the track are driving these first few weeks of practice," said Sheffield.
