Boys’, Girls’ track working hard

By: Maisie Stout

Track season is well underway, as the team finishes their fifth meet last Friday at home. Both teams finished in first place overall. For many seniors, the meet was bittersweet because it was their last home meet ever.

“It was a great meet. Everyone had a blast and did so well. I am really going to miss pole vaulting with my team after I graduate,” senior pole vaulter Presley Fisher said.

Both boys’ and girls’ teams are looking to having state qualifiers as they have in past years. Last year, the girls’ track team placed 2nd at the state meet. As of right now, the team has many members ranked at the state level including sophomore Tori Starcher who is number one in the 800 meter dash, 1600 meter dash, and 3200 meter dash. After the Russ Parsons meet on April 14, the boys’ 4x200 team is ranked third in the state. The 4x200 team consists of senior Samuel Pierson, Steven Carte, junior Noah Kelly, and sophomore Noah Carson, all of which are previous state qualifiers or placers.

“I think everyone has improved a lot this year. We are definitely looking forward to regionals and having a lot of people qualify for states,” sophomore Gabe Zuniga said.

The track team has been introduced to a new coach, Alex Hoffman. Hoffman mostly helps with the sprinters train and practice so that they will hopefully improve in time and performance.

“Hoffman is very knowledgeable. He definitely knows what he is doing,” Pierson said.

Health teacher Michael Bright remains as the boys’ head coach and continues to help the team reach its potential. At the beginning of the year, Krystle Cunningham and Carrie Starcher were also added as coaches for the girls’ team. Both coaches are excited to be a part of the team and are eager to see the team dominate in their upcoming meets.

“I think our team is doing well. All in all, it is a great team and I am very proud of our girls and boys,” Cunningham said.

The next meet is at St. Mary’s April 27.

  8. Yet while normal and understandable, this is also something that's addressable. (Not entirely fixable, of course, but at least addressable.) But facts aren't the way to do it -- simply getting better at announcing the who, what, where, and when of things won't really convey the flavor of this lively place. For that you need stories.
