Track and Field Season Begins

The track season is now several meets underway and there is already lots to be excited about. The men and women’s teams have been training since February, working on form, endurance, speed, and strength.

On Tuesday, the Cavs competed in a meet at Palmetto High School in Williamston, SC. The team had a strong showing that makes the Future look bright.  The women’s team dominated the meet, winning almost all of the events that they competed in; however, the lady Cavs placed in the only second due to a weather-related scratch at the end. The men’s team did not perform quite as well, but many athletes still had a good day. Sophomore Finn Wiegand got a personal record in the pole vault breaking 10 feet for the first time.  Finn went on to win the pole vault for Christ Church.

According to John-Mark Elliott, coach of the distance squad, distance runners are getting times that last years team was not able to run until the end of the season. With the return of Senior Will Dolven, the continued leadership of Senior captain Seth Snyder and Senior Adelaide Vergnolle, and a large number of new, young runners, the distance team should put up some more personal records at the Westend Invitational Meet at Berea High school on Saturday, March 16.

If you are looking for something to do, and want to support a huge number of Christ Church students, come out to a track and field meet this spring.
