On Thursday, April 19, the boys and girls varsity track teams will compete in the annual Forwald Coleman Meet. Athletes participating in relays all have a chance to qualify for Drake Relays.

Jae Dancer ‘21, a member on the girls varsity track team, will be competing in the distance medley and the 400 meter hurdles.

“I really want to qualify for Drake Relays and I think it would be really cool to qualify as a freshman,” Dancer said. “Obviously there is a lot of pressure, it’s a really big deal.”

Oisin Leopold ‘20, who is on the boys varsity track team will also be competing tomorrow night. He will be running in the 4×110 meter shuttle hurdle relay and the 110 meter hurdles. Leopold also hopes to qualify for Drake Relays.

“I’m really confident that I can qualify for Drake,” Leopold said. “I’m going to try to run a 15 flat on the hurdle highs tomorrow.”

Particularly this school year, there has been a lot of cancellations due to cold weather for sports, and especially for track.  

“I think the more canceled practices has somehow affected us,” Dancer said. “But I feel like this year, the track team looks better than ever and I think we can perform well tomorrow.”
