Junior thrower Curtis Wideman lifts weights Tuesday in the Troutt-Wittmann Center. Wideman, who is training for the upcoming track and field season, has taken on a leadership role after last year’s top throwers J.C. Lambert and Kim Fortney graduated. “I had J.C. Lambert to look up to and to be stepping up and trying to fill his shoes is a big opportunity for me so I am glad to be taking on the role,” Wideman said. The Saluki track and field team kicks off its indoor season Dec. 7 at home in the Recreation Center.REMY ABROUGHT
