The Track team this year had a short season.  The track team suffered from many injuries causing the unique season. The adversity did not stop the track team from beating their records. Coach Carrie Ann Swaim was proud of this year’s runners for beating their personal records right after their time of being injured. Swaim said the runners beat their personal records in at least one of their events or even both. Swaim said this year they beat their goals of having the long distance runners focus on getting faster times instead of endurance as well as having elementary kids compete in elementary meets and not run just run in middle school meets.  This year fifth grade student Meg Andresen and fourth grade student Nicholas Ratz were the only elementary track runners that also ran in middle school races this year.

Homeschooled runner Kaeden Swaim beat three of his personal records this year.  

“It was a very good season and everyone did very well,” Kaeden said.

Ninth grade student and track runner Simon Stevens also beat his personal record this year after healing from being injured.  

“One of the goals for next year would be to increase the size of the team because it’s much more fun to compete as a team other than individuals.”
