Track is a perfect way to stay fit, and it’s only an hour a day.
“I chose to do track, to get in shape and get good college applications,” said freshman Vanessa Fontes. Track is not really about being fast; it’s about whether or not you’re in shape. “In my freshman year I was able to run the 400 but my sophomore year I couldn’t, but this year I did cross country so hopefully I’m in shape now,” said Junior Nicole Brewton. Couch Capps, Burnham, Tolman, Waitley, and Musgrave teach different kinds of activities. “In Track you have a lot of fun and you do the events that you want to do,” says Coach Musgrave.
