2022 CHS Track team preview

Alonzo Hopkins, Staff Writer

The track season is here, so what is track? Track is an athletic sport that involves running, jumping, and throwing. The track team is finally coming back to school this year after two years of Covid-19 causing limited seasons. They’re finally back and here to win. Mr. Jurasek, the coach of the track and field team, gives a brief statement: “We always try to win the three biggies: league, regionals, and state. I think we can.”

Much of the track team are friends that some would normally hang out with each other off of track, which could help for a better and stronger team. Omarion Culliver gave a comment about track:¨I’m looking forward to hanging out with friends.¨

They’ve also been training hard for the upcoming season this year. Some want to pass their old records, which they fully couldn’t before due to Covid. Aiden Richardson, a player in track was also affected by the pandemic. “I’m looking forward to beating my freshmen PR because that’s the furthest I jumped in the long jump since I’ve been in high school. That’s probably the biggest thing I’m looking forward to.”

Right now the track team is preparing for their first meet for this season. It will be held at home on April 13 at 4:30. Come out and cheer for your Yellow Jacket track team!
