Track & Field
Track and Field began practicing February 29th at our brand new facility! It has been so nice to walk out of the school, down the stairs, and onto this beautiful track and field for our athletes to work out each day. We are truly grateful for this space and place. As a team we are 60+ strong this season , including our athletes, managers, coaches, and volunteer. This is the biggest team we have had in many years.
The first two weeks of practice were spent on assessments, conditioning, and foam rolling. Many girls needed spring break to let their legs, hips, backs, feet…. calm down from the shock of running five days/week. Unfortunately, many girls came back ill from their vacations and had to miss more practice. The rest of the team participated in a two day Intra Squad Meet (time trials), where we utilized parent volunteers on one day followed by a team dinner.
Our opening Track and Field meet was for Freshmen/Sophomores on Tuesday, March 29 in St Joe, Mo. We had several improvements from time trials. Hana Visesio had a best throw in the Discus which awarded her a First Place Medal. Also, winning her event was Ava Rawson, who ran the 300m Hurdles in a very respectable time.
Friday, April 1 (no fooling), many of our Varsity athletes were at a school function and were unable to compete. Because we have a deep team this year, we were able to put together a solid team of individuals for the Rusty Hodge Invitational. Again, many girls achieved improvements from time trials. Lauren Blando ran a best time in her 800m Run and placed 2nd for a silver medal. Ella Anstoetter equaled her jump at state last year and received a 3rd place medal for her efforts.
There are two meets the week of April 4th, The IL Fellowship Meet on Thursday and the Bishop Miege Invitational on Friday. All girls will have an opportunity to compete in one meet this week. Next week, Tuesday, April 12th is our Home Track and Field Meet where we will dual St Teresa’s Academy. All athletes will compete in this meet. We hope you will come out and cheer on the Storm. The Field events begin at 3:00pm and the Running events begin at 4:00pm.
