Track and Field
May 26, 2022
The track and field team has grown closer and competed hard in meets while overcoming undesirable weather conditions to create a successful season.
Freshman Sawyer Bollinger Danielson described the season as “fast because it’s three weeks and because we’re running fast.” The SPA track and field team started strong this season, with senior Jack Hlavka placing second in the boys’ 800 and freshman Taylor Barkwell placing second in the girls’ 3200 and has continued to see success throughout the season.
Sophomore Ingrid Johnson explained that the team grew closer through the difficult weather. “I think everyone bonded through like the bad weather we had because there were a few times where we had to kind of go on runs in the rain, and I think everyone had a lot of fun,” Johnson said.
The team has continued their success from earlier in the season with high-placing finishes in many races and events. The girls track team has their final meet was May 19 at Providence Academy. The boys team wrapped up their season May 23.
