Spring Sports are starting! There are three sports you can participate in: softball, baseball and track & field.

Physicals for all spring sports will take place Thursday, March 3 after school. Athletes are to meet in the gymnasium with their coach for their respective sport.

There are 18 different events broken up into different sections. On the track there are sprinting events, middle distance and long distance, such as the 800 meter run, the mile and the two mile.

Then, there are jumping events, which include the high jump, long jump, triple jump and pole vault.

Finally, throwing events such as javelin, shot put and discus are options for athletes too.

Sam Solomon, the girls’ track and field coach said, “So, there is really something for everybody with track; you don’t have to be the fastest kid.”

If you want to participate in track, you just have to show up. There are no tryouts and you are guaranteed a spot on the team.
