Students play a lot of different types of sports, but track is by far the most diverse, therefore making it a sport with a lot of people wanting to do it. The school track tryouts are right around the corner and everyone participating should be getting themselves ready physically and mentally. Students who ran cross country should be rested and be rejuvenated by the start of the season. The tryout dates are soon to be released, but all we know now is that it will take place in late November.

Athletic Director Lance Parks sheds some insight on the start of the track season.

“The first official day of practice is December 1st that is when all spring sports start … I don’t know when Coach Frailey plans on starting, he is probably gonna start lifting around that time,” Parks said.

They will start practice running later in January and February. The players will be lifting a couple days of the week. All players are expected to be ready for the start of the season on this date.

School President Father Gary Kastl believes there is an important aspect to sports including track that some people are missing out in which is our faith in God. You need the discipline to make yourselves go beyond your limits and do better than you did before. You need to receive that discipline from ourselves with the help of God. 

“It takes the discipline in our spiritual lives to draw close to the lord, but we don’t do that in isolation we do that in a community and when we are striving to be our best our team benefits from that,” Kastl said.

Track is very good for your body it keeps you up and doing something because today we don’t get as much exercise as people did years ago. Track is a very good sport for everybody because it strengthens you physically and mentally. You need sports like track to help you live healthy. Principal Jim Franz believes the activity is something teenagers need.

“We are living in a time where physical activity is less than fifty years ago, just the normal day to day life,” Franz said.
