As the track and field season looms closer, excitement is building for the Gardner Edgerton High School team. With a talented group of returning players and dedicated coaches at the helm, the Blazers are poised for another successful season. In this article, we spoke with Coach Admin Admin about the upcoming season for the team at Gardner Edgerton High School.

Coach Admin Admin speaks highly of Walion, stating that he "was the Sunflower League Champion and Regional Champion and placed 4th at the state meet" last season. With a personal best of 4:15 in the 1600m, Walion is definitely one to watch out for this season. Coach Admin Admin also mentions that Walion was a key member of the boys' cross country team, helping them win the 6A state championship in the fall.
