The track team is more than halfway done with their current season and are now working toward postseason (District Championships), which is when the best athletes in their events have the chance of being qualified for the State Championship Meet.Track and field coach, Mr. Lambert, said that they have a good group of athletes on the team this year that will have a good chance at earning one of those spots. Those who perform well at the District Championship will then train for the bigger meet, which is the State Championship.

In preparation for the District Championships, which will be held within the upcoming two weeks, coach Lambert said, “There are different phases to running but right now we are training to maintain strength and speed.” He said that at this point into the season all of the athletes should be in good condition. Lambert said this is the part of the season most runners look forward to because it is when the best athletes in each event advance in the next round, in hopes of qualifying for State Championships meet.
