Winter Track gives runners a chance to condition for spring track. It has all the events in spring track except some of the throwing events. The team practices mainly outdoors but if weather is bad then they run in the building.
“I’m ready to start the track season and condition for the spring season,” said Alejandra Garcia, 10.
The winter track season has significantly less meets than spring track. They only have about five or six meets thought the year.
“Even though there are less events it is still helpful for training for the spring season,” said Ted Vlady, 10.
The spring track team events include:
100 meter dash
200 meter dash
400 meter dash
110 meter Hurdles
300 meter IM Hurdles
400 meter relay
800 meter relay
1600 meter relay
3200 meter relay
6400 meter relay
As the winter track season starts up, runners are ready to get to work and start training for the spring track season.
