On Saturday, March 10, the boys track and field team competed at York High School in Elmhurst for an invite. In addition to the York and Central’s teams, athletes from Neuqua Valley, St. Charles North, and Fremd competed as well.

This is the team’s fifth meet of the season, and they have practiced constantly to keep in shape under the leadership of Coach Noah Lawrence.

Students took part in a variety of events, including the pole vault, hurdles, relay, triple jump, and many more.

“We have about three to four hard workouts per week, defined by an eight mile day with mile repeats for as fast as you can run for that amount of time. We run eight miles for an average day, two to three hours for practice,” said James Giltner, a junior who placed 10th in section four for the 800 meter run. “There’s more than two hours of commitment a day. When you get home from a hard workout, you just want to shut down and sleep, but you still have to stay on top of academics and other commitments.”

The meet opened with a 3200 meter (two mile) race. Daniel Skora, sophomore, held the lead for about seven of the 16 laps before being overtaken by Liam Walsh, senior, who finished in second.

Also at the meet, Josh Terry, junior distance and mid-distance runner, achieved a personal record mile time of 4:54. Additionally, Kevin Ellis, senior, received second for his heat in the 800 meter event.

The upcoming track season is filled with many invitational meets, such as the Red Devil Sophomore Invitational on Tuesday, April 24, the Frosh/Soph JV Conference on Saturday, March 17, and the McCarthy Invite on Friday, May 4. To see results from the York Invite, click here.
