A Carlmont varsity track runner, sprinting down the field, is just about to cross the finish line.

They cross.

The result concludes that Carlmont received first place for all of their varsity events (athletic.net).

Carlmont’s track and field team had their first home dual meet against Aragon High School on Wednesday, March 21.

“It is a big leap from practice and everyone adjusted well from seeing people run and there is always a lot of encouragement following a lot of positive attitudes which really helped our teammates pull through and do really well,” said 200 meter runner Jackson Monge, a senior.

Both schools competed with both of their frosh/soph teams along with both of their varsity teams.

It is always a great feeling running on your home track for your team.”

— said freshman, Christopher Fromm

“It is always a great feeling running on your home track for your team. Plus, it is especially amazing to run against competition even when you are running against good schools such as Aragon,” said 200 meter and 4×100 meter relay runner Christopher Fromm, a freshman.

Runners reveal what went on through their heads as they were running their race.

I kept on telling myself to push, push, and push past her just to beat her to the finish line”

— said sophomore, Kaija Villagrand

“When there was a girl running next to me, the main focus was to get in front of her so then I kept on telling myself to push, push, and push past her just to beat her to the finish line,” said 100 meter, 200 meter, and 4×100 meter relay runner, sophomore Kaija Villagrand.

As for the rest of the meet, there were many runners who stretched on their own in order to have no distractions.

For once everyone showed up for their race, so the whole event went smoothly.

“Most of our runners beat their fastest runners’ time by three to four seconds, which is a huge difference. Hard work was a really big part as to how and why we won against them,” Monge said.

According to athletic.net, the other results for Carlmont were a tie for frosh/soph men’s and second place for their frosh/soph women’s team.

During this track season, Carlmont will be a strong competitor against their school rivals.
