Posted on May 26, 2015 by


The Fleetwood Tigers boys and girls varsity track teams wrapped up a great season. The boys finished with an outstanding record of 7-0, and the girls finished with a record of 6-1.

“It was an amazing last season, and it’s one I’ll remember for a long time. We made a ton of great memories,” senior Gary Gabriel said.

The boys track team is led by seniors Gary Gabriel, Shaq Cobb, Matt Hook, and Thaddeus Cornick, as well as juniors Nick Hope and Patrick Dejesus. Senior Gary Gabriel participated in hurtles and qualified for the county meet.

“We had a ton of great runners, throwers, jumpers, and hurdlers on the team, and that really helped us out this year with winning so many meets,” Gabriel said.

Hope, Cornick, and, Dejesus were the team’s best runners and qualified for the county meet. Junior Nick Hope qualified for the district meet along with Thaddeus Cornick and Javelin thrower Matt Hook, who is a senior.

“I’m going to miss the team after this year. I get one more chance to compete with them in districts, and if we all do well enough, hopefully we will compete together in states as well,” senior Matt Hook said.

The girls track team finished 6-1 with their only loss coming in the first meet against Wyomissing. They are led by senior Cyre Virgo, a Texas Tech recruit. Virgo participated in the high jump and hurdle. The high jump is her best event, earning her multiple awards at national indoor meets.

“Cyre is an amazing athlete, and I’m excited to see how she does in college. She dominated in basketball and track and field. She’s a great teammate and vocal leader,” Hook said.
