One particular runner on the track team is Aaron Laxamana, who viewed this season as a success. “With so many restrictions I didn’t think that track was going to happen this year, so the fact that I can run on the team is amazing,” Aaron said. “I’ve PR’d in my events multiple times and I still hope to continue to do so.”
