Athletics Update: Track & Field Stars Emerge
In the third and final three-week mini-season this spring, the eighth-grade class chose from lacrosse, tennis, and track & field. A total of 14 athletes selected track & field, and they brought their “A” game. For the past two weeks, the team has finished up with an intersquad meet on Thursday afternoons, and the results have been impressive. When compared to historical times and distances, this year’s group of athletes would be placing on a consistent basis and collectively they would be a tough team to beat. At the end of a long year of modified sports and no interscholastic competition, the fact that these eighth grade athletes are still competing at this level each and every day is a testament to their character and commitment. Well done, eighth grade. Well done.
