Imagine walking onto the track and stepping up to the line. You are surrounded
by some of your biggest rivals. Your adrenaline is pumping and your heart is
racing. You have a matter of seconds before everything you are feeling is over:
Track is an overall team sport, but, at times feels, like an individual one. This year will be exciting, but, at the same time, the coaches are developing the underclassman into their desired events and the relay teams.
The boys team is looking to make some noise in the conference this year with their performances on the track and in the field.
The boys have run in three meets so far. The first meet was The Wolverine Invitational, the second was a quad meet involving West Geauga, Orange, Beachwood, and Cuyahoga Heights, and the third was a dual meet versus Aurora.
The boys might not be placing in the top team wise, but the runners are placing high in certain events. Runners like Brody Fratantonio, Tim Balkovec, Louie Link, and Jeff Corbo have been scoring points in open and relay events. The athletes participating in field events have also been doing very well. There have been outstanding performances by jumpers Kyle Visner and Louie Link. The pole vault team is still young but improving every day. The throwers are led by senior Wally Church, who is receiving help from junior throwers Tom Kelly, Charles Ebersbacer, and Cody Andrus.
“There is always room for improvement and there is always room for jello,” says Coach Boylan.
