The Allen Community College track and field team has been busy over the past few weeks.
Two weekends ago, Allen made the short trip to Emporia to start its season before heading south and splitting up to compete at three different meets in Texas and Oklahoma.
The Emporia meet, while small, was significant because it marked the first time in over a year that head cross country and track and field coach Vince DeGrado was able to join his team at a meet. DeGrados NJCAA-mandated suspension for an altercation that took place at the end of indoor track season in 2018 ended earlier this year.
