The track team has started conditioning for their upcoming season, and will continue to do so for several weeks. The team practices every day from 2-4 p.m.  “For the general team, we start out with a warm-up run of ¾ miles,” Coach Eagleson explained. “Then we do static stretches, followed by dynamic stretches, and then break into groups for different running work-outs for the runners. The throwers and other specialty field event members will do their own specific work-outs.” One athlete, Bryce Wyatt, 10th grade, explained, “it has been pretty easy, but hard at the same time to just get back into the habit of running a lot; we do warm up laps and then split into different groups.”

Some of the students had already started out being nervous about trying out because of the talk of possible early cuts. Katie Peterson, 10th grade, said, “I really wanted to try out because I love running, but I heard that they are going to be making a ton of cuts. So I was just too scared to actually go to tryouts.” Team member Bryce Wyatt, 10th, said, “That whole thing is not really true at all, and in fact people are still coming on to the team during the practices. If people really want to come join the team, they should come and talk to Coach Eagleson about it.”

Last year at the PCAC championship, the girls’ team came in 2nd place, and the boys placed in 3rd. Coach Eagleson also mentioned, “This year, we should compete for the PCAC Championship in both boys and girls. Both of our teams are also always district contenders.”

Their first meet will be Wednesday, February 18th at East Lake High School.  It will feature captains Maddy Repka and Gabby Fisher for the girls, and AJ Jimenez and Chad Brittain for the boys.
