Runners line up at one of the few track meets held at Palisades High this season. The track and the playing field ust be replaced this summer because surfaces are hard as rock, with divots everywhere.

A high GMAX test value means the field is absorbing less impact, and returning more force to the player, resulting in a potentially dangerous situation that could cause injuries and concussions.
