Track Teams Look to Start Strong out of the Gate

Posted on April 16, 2015 by


Both the boys and girls track teams are expected to do big things again this year. Both teams went 6-1 last year, only losing to Wyomissing.

“I can’t wait for the first meet. I’m trying the hurdles for the first time this year, and I’m super excited about that. I just hope all the injuries stay to a minimum so everyone on the team can succeed and make it far this year,” sophomore Morgan Weidemoyer said.

A lot of freshmen joined the track team this year, and they look like a big contribution to both of the teams.

“This is my first year of track, and I’m very excited to be a part of the team my freshman year. I cannot wait for the season to really start. I do the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, high jump, and long jump, and I hope I can exceed my goals for my first year of track.  I hope to continue to do it throughout high school. My favorite part about track is going to the track meets and hanging out with all of my friends,” freshman Lauren Hughes said.

There are a handful of seniors who are on their last track season here at Fleetwood, and they are expecting big things to come along with it.

“I can’t believe it’s my last year of track here at Fleetwood. I love going to all the track meets and hanging out with the entire team. I’ll miss the coaches a lot. I hope that everyone can stay healthy and keep up the good work. I do both of the hurdles, and my goal is to beat my PR,” senior Gary Gabriel said.

“I’m very excited to see how well we do against the tougher teams this year. We are expected to do very good, and for it being my senior year, I hope we do,” senior Joey Goggins said.

The track team hopes to exceed the expectations everyone has for them. Good luck to both track teams!
