LaPorte Track ‘Grand Opening’ to be celebrated with inaugural first lap in orange and black

Published 6:21 pm Tuesday, September 6, 2016

All are invited to join Elizabethton City Schools students, staff and administrators in a celebration of the grand opening of the new LaPorte Track at Elizabethton High School.
ECS students and community members will walk a ceremonial first lap around the track along with the LaPorte brothers, the Betsy Band and Cyclone cheerleaders. Please join us on the track on Friday, Sep. 9 at 9:30 a.m. in full Cyclone regalia.
The new track will enable Cyclone track and field teams to have home meets, and it will reduce injury during practice. Elizabethton coaches and administrators want to sincerely thank the Citizens Bank Tri-Cities Foundation, Elizabethton Board of Education and the City of Elizabethton for making this dream a reality for Cyclone athletes and the community.
ECS track athletes are well-known for their consecutive district titles, state qualifiers and national successes, including Heather Feuchtenberger’s recent placement in the Junior Olympics. The track is also used by many in the community for exercise. Join us as we walk the first lap together!
