Track and field

As second semester comes, athletes can be seen running on the track in freezing temperatures, getting ready for the 2013 track season. These committed students meet two to three times a week in order to ensure they are one hundred percent ready to do the best they can during the actual season, which starts in late February. They don’t only run on the track, but also work out in the weight room because muscles can help a runner to sprint harder, a shot-putter to throw further, and a hurdler to jump higher.

Different students have different reasons to why they are starting track and field so early. “Honestly, I have nothing better do at this time so I might as well run and prepare for the regular season,” said junior Abraham Farooqui. “I also can’t wait for the regular season to start because I will have fun with my friends while working out.”

Even long distance runners, such as junior Emily Laubscher, are pre-season training in such cold conditions. Her goals were plain and simple: “to get mentally and physically ready for the season and to hopefully make CCS” Emily plans on running the 800m and mile this year. She placed in PALS last year and stands a good chance in CCS. “For this to happen, I have to start training and preparing now.”

Track isn’t all about sprinters and runners. Senior Larry Campbell does the triple jump, 4x4m, 4x100m, and hurdles. “Though I’m not doing pre-season this year, it has helped me with my stamina. However, I’m really excited for the season this year. It will be the third time I got to CCS.”

While pre-season track is coming to end, with the regular season beginning to start, many people are excited for this upcoming season. With having pre-season as a help to start off the new season, many of the track members are set to start the season on a good note.
