Indoor winter track had their first meet of the season at TJ middle school on Dec. 12.  The indoor track runners had mixed feelings about their first meet.

The indoor track meet consisted of 4×800, 300 meter dash and the 4×800 relay. 

“The meet was a good start to the season and we did pretty well for the beginning of the season,” 

sophomore Kelsie Licatovich said.

Licatovich came first in her heat of the 300 meter dash.

Senior Robert Lamb ran the 4×800 and felt that this meet was one of the less competitive meets since it was the first of the season.

Lamb came in first the in the 4×800 and came in third for the 1600 meter race.

Focusing on the race and not worrying about first place was main goal for some track runners, while other runners made it their goal to come in first in their race.

“The meet was fun and energetic, I mainly focus on beating the person in front of me rather than winning the race,” sophomore Youssef El Boukri said.

El Boukri ran the 1600 meter race and thought he did well for his first meet of the season.

“The track runners for 4×800 team created a goal to achieve first place and we did,” junior Risky Alvarado said. Alvarado thought the meet went well because he got third place in the two mile race.

“My goal was just to run as well as I could because it wasn’t the best track and I think I achieved it,” Lamb said.

The next indoor track meet is fit invite and it is at PG Sports Complex.
