Indoor track expectations for season; Racing off to starting lines


     Indoor track is heading to the starting line. Indoor track is starting their season on November 15. Athletes are excited for the upcoming season and are hopeful for a successful season.

     The 2019-2020 season indoor track was very successful; the team was able to place 4  in regionals for the 4×800 relay, and then move on into states they did not place in states they came in 14. Kendall Fortune said, “We were still super proud of our team for making it to regionals.”

     Last year Winter sports did not have a season due to students being virtual and covid. Many players are nervous about the upcoming season, but many are also excited to be back in action and doing the sport they enjoy.

     Indoor track has around 10 meets during the season that athletes compete in. They have a meet every Friday.  Meets usually consist of more than one opposing team, and can last from 3-5 hours depending on how many athletes will be racing at the meet.

     Junior Jodylynn Cadden said, “I was very nervous for the upcoming season, but I am excited to spend time bonding with my teammates. I also want to have fun this season with my friends and hopefully we will make it to regionals and hopefully states this year.” 

     Cadden also participates in cross country in the fall, indoor track in the winter, and lacrosse in the spring. “Doing indoor track keeps me in shape throughout the year and also helps me to be prepared for lacrosse season.”

     Junior Sierra Weaver said, “my favorite part of indoor track are the people. It is a great environment and a great group of people.” Weaver usually runs the 800 and the ‘4×800’. She also participates in cross country and track. Weaver also said “I am excited for the group this year and excited to see how everyone does in meets, there is a lot of talent this year. Hopefully we will have a successful season.”     
     Athletes have high expectations for the season and are hoping to live up to them. Junior Finley Lavin said, “My expectations for the season are just to have fun while also working out. One goal for the season would be to beat my freshman year times and become an overall better runner.”

     Lavin also said, “I am not nervous for the season at all, indoor is more a time to prepare for other sports while racing at the same time”
