Ask any member of the team and you will hear the same thing time and time again, track is one of the most competitive sports.

There are seven competition events for the women. There are five main events in track which are sprints, middle distance, long distance, hurdles, and relays. Many of the ladies have been a part of the team as long as they have been in high school, and for some, since junior high. Nasia Claire and Kameryn Carter have both been participating in track for four years and they enjoy the sport because it is fun.

“I enjoy my team because we all get along and we encourage each other to do better and work better,” Aaliyah Robinson said.

Long jump and triple jump were a part of track and field events which athletes combined speed, strength, and agility to leap as far as possible from a starting point.

“I have been doing track since the seventh grade, I enjoy track because it is an exciting sport to participate in. I do shot put because I am good at it.” Eryn Harris said.

Being a part of the track team didn’t always mean running though. Many members also participated in field events such as shot put and discus. Both required strength and agility as participants threw their required object to see who could launch it the furthest.

“I’ve been throwing in track for four years and I enjoy the team aspect of the sport the most,” Dasia White said.
