Something is going on with the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame track and field program. Of the 180 boys on the track team, 32 are shot putters. "We try to make it fun," Coach Joe McNab said. On Thursday, in a dual meet against Alemany, five of the shot putters surpassed 50 feet, led by Kyle Swanson, who was at 53-9. Apparently they like throwing around a 12-pound lead ball at Notre Dame. It's fun. Eric.email@example.com

The field has lights, so the game could be delayed until conditions allow it to be played. It will be the first test of the field's drainage system.
