    Track & Field

    Post  joyceliao on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:41 pm

    Life is like a circle: its beginning is indefinite, its middle is unclear, and its end seems unfathomable to the human mind. For the members of the Varsity Track and Field team, however, life is more accurately compared to a oval. A red, distinctly surfaced oval of torture on Mondays and most Thursdays.
    Last Thursday, the team kicked off its season with a double triumph, beating out San Gabriel and Bishop Amat at one time. They left them in the dust, with a final score of 113 to __ and __ on the girl's side, and ____ to __ and __ on the boy's.
    Even at a more competitive invitational, the girl's team swept, capturing first in many relays and individual events, and came home with a first place plaque and outscoring the twelve other teams in attendance. The boys also performed well, coming in fourth in the final tally.
    Despite it being early season, Coach Schultz does not expect anything less of his team. (Insert quote here)
    They train Monday through Friday, with a competition most Thursdays and Saturdays. (Insert second quote here)

    Hour after hour, they test their limitations as they fight to move lead-filled arms and brick-laden legs to the final stretch, and then head to the weightroom for more work.
    It is a tough, long, and slow process that takes the inexperienced runner and molds him or her into an awe-inspiring athlete. For those that choose to stick with it, however, it is an amazingly rewarding experience.

    (We have a meet tomorrow, so I'll have more scores up :] )

    "we have another good chance on all four levels of scoring 44-0," says senior Monique Spata.
