On Wednesday May 8, the varsity boys track team competed in the DAC meet at Lake Central High School.  The boys competed against Chesterton, Portage, Merrillville, and Crown Point High Schools.

“I have a lot of competition, especially in the DAC, there are so many talented runners in this conference,” Logan Russell (10) said.

There was so much talent at the meet which made them more determined to try their best and work even harder to accomplish their goals.  While some boys struggled with the competition, others scored personal records.

“We have a lot of good runners that are getting better and PRing every meet so it’s really exciting to watch everyone improve,” Gehrig Sarbieski (12) said.

The boys had some tough competition but still gave it their all to score as many points as possible for the team.  They worked hard to try to achieve their goal but unfortunately fell short to receiving the recognition they had hoped for.

“The team can only do so much but in big meets like this it’s up to you to raise the competition.  We will be fine the rest of the year if we all come together and score the most points possible,” Gordon Suroviak (10) said.

Next week the team will compete in their sectionals meet and hopefully continue on to regionals and state.

“Honestly we have struggled all season as a team but I think we can come together and make some waves at sectionals,” Jackson Sarbieski (11) said.
