The season for track and field has just begun. There are many events in Track and just as many in Field. There is Long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault and several other events in Field and Hurdles, sprints and other events in Track.

There are many people participating in track and field, some to stay in shape, for other sports and others for the love of the sport.

Track and Field is an ancient sport which was in the Olympics games in ancient greece in 776 B.C. and has been played ever since, all around the world.

San Lorenzo Valley’s track and field team is a very large team and is doing very well.              Both the boys and girls track team have a record of 2-0.

At the track meets there are several schools competing at a time. This way they can have more races over the season.

The field’s team boys and girls both won their first meet against Saint Francis High School. Some events include shot-put, discus, long jump, triple jump. Sophomore Jordan Yanowitz said “ I expect great things this year from our team, there has been much improvement from the team since last year.”

Cassie Ackeman and Sam Schubert made it to state last year. Jared Rambo said “I have better expectations for this years team. I believe there will be a few more people in CCS and even State.”
