Athletes learn importance of nutrition

The first practice of the year for the Algoma High School track and field team will charge out of the blocks Monday afternoon with assistance from dietician Lee Hyrkas. He will be presenting for about 45 minutes to the group as a whole before leading breakout sessions with individual athletes to help them build the most efficient nutrition plan for the upcoming season. Hyrkas has presented to several schools in the area and says there are usually around five coaches or athletes who benefit significantly from the talks.

 


Hyrkas says he will tailor his message to the needs of individual sports. Football and wrestling will be more protein-heavy to build muscle, whereas speed and agility are the name of the game for basketball and track.
