Chiefland Middle High School track and field is hosting the first-ever C. Doyle McCall and Wendell Corbin Honorary Invitational Track Meet Thursday, April 5, in honor of two coaches who built the foundation of the program.

McCall, best known as a legendary football coach for the Indians, founded the track program in 1953, and Corbin helped take it to new heights as a longtime coach. A special presentation will be held at 3:15 p.m. before the meet to honor the two coaches. McCall is unable to attend due to health reasons, so a member of one of his first track teams, Jolyn Corbin, will accept the honor on his former coach’s behalf.

With six schools slated to participate, including Bronson, Williston, Mayo-Lafayette and Jefferson County, the meet will be as large or larger than any meet in recent years hosted at CMHS.

The meet will start at 3:30 p.m., beginning with the 4x800 relay, followed by the field events, and then the remaining running events.

The CMHS Running Sports Booster Club is putting on the meet with award sponsorships from Bar-B-Q Bill’s and Chiefland Farm Supply.

Chiefland competes in the district championships Tuesday, April 10, at Oak Hall School in Gainesville.
