Basketball Players In Track & Field Were A Slam Dunk In 2022

Tracking Basketball? 

It's well documented that football and track are a symbiotic relationship. Success in one gives way to success in the other. There's an entire sports analytics company dedicated to it. 

I've said many times it's not hard to be good at track and field in Tennessee. What's hard is getting the best athletes in the school to join track and field. There's no shortage of high profile football programs in my immediate area who have zero presence on the oval during the spring months. But while football may be the focus, as the more female winners I interviewed in Murfreesboro last may, the more athletes who call basketball their primary sport started to stand out. While this most definitely isn't all of them, here a few that help illustrate how dominant they were.
