Jim Eger has been coaching track since 1959.

ELKHART — Before the shut down of high school spring sports because of the coronavirus, Jim Eger received some great news.

During the second day of practice in early March, Elkhart Memorial head track coach Adam Homo told Eger to go talk to Elkhart Memorial Assistant Athletic Director Phyllis Tubbs.

This story has been updated to clarify the existing track will be renovated.
