Seven runners line up to race, two of whom are juniors Aaron Laxamana and Dom Ruff

It’s spring sports season, which means that the track and field team is racing into action, and their first meet was the Halden Invitational on March 12 at Davis High School.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend, but from what I’ve heard, it seems like everyone did amazing. 5 of the few runners that attended won their heats. The school I had my SAT at was actually the school where the invitational was and, luckily, I was able to see Dom win his heat,” junior Aaron Laxamana said.

The team had their first league meet on March 23 at Encina High School.

Falcons competed in the 3200 meter run, 1600 meter, 800 meter, 400 meter, 200 meter, 100 meter, 4 x 400 meter relay, 4 x 100 meter relay, 300 meter hurdles, 100 meter hurdles, Long jump, High jump, Triple jump, Pole vault, Shot put, and Discus.

“I am really excited for what we will be able to do as a team this year with lots of hard work and practice!””

Junior Dom Ruff won the 100 and 400 meter, sophomore Kara Krulick won the 800 meter, senior Chris Lespron won the 800 and 1600 meter, and junior Katrina Husby won the 1600 and 3200 meter.

“Everyone did really well. We all put forward our best eff ort and even got some PR’s,” sophomore Kara Krulick said.

The team’s most recent meet was March 30 at Golden Sierra High School.

Freshman Maverick Adam won the 800 meter, freshman Ryder Sietsema won the 200 meter, and the varsity boys won the 4 x 400 meter relay.

With this new season came some changes as well.

“The big differences are that we have a new coach, DeShawn Seymour, who I think is going to be a great fit for our program,” junior Katrina Husby said.

“I’m looking forward to running new events and having fun with them at the meets,” junior Nakaya Peters said.

They continue to work hard as the season progresses, and they look forward to competing in many meets this season.
