This spring, seventh and eighth graders joined the school’s track team for either their first year or going into their second year to participate in an extracurricular activity.

In track, everyone gets accepted, and there are no cuts. Students can participate in the events they choose. There are about 16 activities to choose from including running, jumping, throwing, etc. The seventh graders are always new because it is their first year at the school although some eighth graders could be new if they decided not to participate in seventh grade.

“(I enjoy)Being with new people and running,” Davis said.

Track is a sport to take part in when trying to meet new people. Participants will be with people who enjoy doing the same event and can try and connect.

“It’s really fun and I’m liking it a lot,” eighth grader Maddy Adelaberger said.

This is Adelabergers second year of track.

“My sister did track and cross country when she was in school and I wanted to be like her so I joined,” Adelaberger said.

She was inspired last year to play because of her sister playing. 

“We mostly run and practice what events we are competing in,” Adelaberger said.

At track practice, they have conditioning and practice their events with the same people.

    I think it is great if you like exercise. But since my lungs aren’t the best I don’t really like participating in sports or anything that involves running. or using energy.

    I would like to congratulate our track team on a wonderful season. The boy’s team placed third at championships, and the girl’s team won. Overall, our track team had a stunning performance this year, and I hope to see you all next season!
