Gatewood has good track outing

Posted in:

On the track, we had a solid performance on Wednesday. We had significant improvement in the running events from two weeks ago (last meet). In the field events, we struggled a bit. We had too many miscues to overcome. None of those miscues were from lack of effort. We just had a few things go against us. We will work to get those cleaned up moving forward.

Overall, we finished second in the nine team meet, but as I stated from day one, regular season meets are glorified practices. Track is all about getting better each week and putting everything together when it counts (region and state). I am pleased after two meets, but we must keep working!

This week we host Bethlehem, Brentwood, Briarwood, John Hancock, Monsignor Donovan, Piedmont, Stratford, Twiggs and Windsor. I am expecting some really good competition. I am looking forward to seeing us compete at a high level.

The meet begins at 3:30pm. I hope to see everyone there!
