As the spring sports come to a rapid close, Westhill’s track team wrapped up the season on a positive note. Throughout the duration of the season, the track team surprised many opponents. There is a plethora of young talent, and the team was able to push passed the adversity and really succeed. One of the highlights of the season was that both the girls and boys teams won the Stamford city championship.
“I think, overall, the season went very well. We had a lot of newcomers and younger athletes, but they managed to exceed all of our expectations” said senior and captain Chris Colon. The new talent gave Westhill the edge they needed to be quite successful. With every team comes ways to improve.
“One thing that we definitely need to improve on though is the consistency during practice and logging in hours in the weight room after practice. Despite that, we excelled at improving at every meet and creating a good team atmosphere where we all motivated each other to do better” he continued.
The biggest win of the season came against rival Stamford High. Not only were they playing our enemies, but more importantly for the title.
“Our greatest victory was definitely the City Championships. The girls were able to take back their title after two years and the guys maintained our fourteenth championship in arrow, and it was the highlight of our season.” Colon said. In 2016, the track team was able to grow as a cohesive unit and were able to put the pieces together to be successful.
