Former SJHS students are faced with many new athletic options. one of these being winter track. Coming from a short spring season. freshmen are faced with an opportunity to prolong their track season.

“I think it will be really fun,” freshman track athlete Noa Atkins said.

Though adding an extra four and a half months to their track season can seem intimidating, hardcore freshman track athletes are up for the challenge.

“I’m really looking to improve my skills in time for the spring season,” Atkins said.

Many who participated in SJHS track and field look forward to being able to focus on technique and detail during their extended season, thus giving athletes a chance to improve their form and quicken their times.

As Nov. gets closer, freshmen prepare to embark on a new sports season, in hopes that come the beginning of spring track season they will be one step ahead of the game and ready to take on the competition.

“My goal is to beat my [personal record]” Atkins said.
