All west-side Michigan natives know firsthand the freak snow storm that occurred last week Sunday. However, the boys and girls track team personally know the impact of the harsh conditions. So, when they traveled up to Rockford for their first away meet of the season, they were a bit surprised.

The girls team ran extremely hard for the shift in weather conditions. The wind made running difficult for both the distance team and the sprinters to race to their best of their ability. However,  runners such as Hentemann in the 800-meter and junior Cam Constant in the hurdling events, plus the relay teams, had some of the best races of the day.

“I think the weather really threw us for a loop,” senior Gabby Hentemann said. “We’ve been training in such [poor] condition that it’s been so cold and all sudden it’s 85 degrees and super windy and your body is not used to it.”

The boys ran extremely well, having a back-and-forth meet the entire day. The contest came down to the 2-mile to decide who would take home the win. Lucky, senior Aidan Martin came out first in the event, thereby winning the meet by 4 points.

“I just think we’re doing a great job,” senior Mason Mahacek said. “I we ran a lot faster than we did our first meet and I think that speaks a lot to the training that we’re putting in and how we’re coming together as a team.’

Both the girls and boys team are looking forward to more sunshine and better training conditions for the rest of the season, in order to truly get after it on the track.

“We’re running really fast times and this is only our second meet,” Hentemann said. “I’m really proud of everyone.”
