Boys track off to a good start early on in season

Although it is early in the season, boys track is off to a good start. Everyone on the team is stepping up with very few struggles in particular.

Team expectations are pretty clear this year, “to be competitive in the conference, get a handful of athletes downstate,” said Coach Brian Bucciarelli.

Practices are very important in order to keep this season on a high note. The practices “develop skills to be successful,” said Bucciarelli.

Also, working as a team during the practice is crucial for the team. The “better the training sessions are the better you improve as a runner,” said Bucciarelli.

Although the team is collectively a solid team, there are a few team leaders that should make a difference for the team to accomplish its goals. The sprinters are seniors Dan Dalenberg, Azeez Alabi and Carmen Galgano. They have been able to balance performing well and keeping up their grades at the same time. These students should be taken notice of this early in the season for many upcoming meets.

The team’s meet against St. Viator was a success. Both Varsity and Frosh/Soph teams won their dual meets. In the first time of his career, Dalenberg threw for 50 feet in the shot put. Galgano jumped 12’6” in the Pole Vault, which was a foot from being a state qualifier.

Frosh-Soph took part in Conference last week. Varsity will be taking part in Conference tomorrow.
