With hundreds of athletes competing in track, long jump, high jump, shot put, and discus throw, it’s hard to determine whether a collective school team won or not.

In the case of the Carlmont Scots against the Capuchino Mustangs, it was clear that the Scots finished the meet with many victories.

Junior Noah Shamsai said, “I think this meet was a good start to the season. We competed strongly in every event, and I made a personal record of 24.00 seconds for the boys’ 200-meter, so I’m pretty happy. I look forward to see how much the team and I can improve for our next meet.”

The Scots are satisfied with the first track and field meet of the season, but they have ambitions to do better at the next meet at Woodside High School.

Senior Steven Palthe said, “As a team, the meet went well, especially for our first dual meet of the season. There were very few hiccups and everyone tried their best during their events. At the next meet, I hope that more people participate in multiple events as that gives us a greater chance of winning and allows people to participate more in track.”
