The Strong Push to State

Story by Areesa Steele – Staff Reporter

 Recently the track team has been at a high. Many of the members have reached their goals and created records for the school.

   “This season so far has gone very well. Our 4×100 and 4×200 relay teams are ranked second in the state with Johnathan Brown, Donyell Dy,e Jake Hurl, and Donnell Dye,” Jake Hurl, senior, said.

   Everyone on the team is very happy because they are on their path to going to state. This path, for some, is very emotional since this will be their last year on the team.

   “I’m a little emotional. I’m really going to miss coming to the track and putting in work and seeing it pay off every meet,” Hurl said.

   Seeing as the team is on the path to state, there are some really great races leading them on the path to success. The team is very grateful for all of the coaches helping them get them to where they want to go.

   “Our Sprint Coach, Jason Starnes, is one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. He is always checking in on us seeing how we are doing. how we are performing and just making sure we are good and healthy,” Hurl said.
