Out with the old, in with the new. Even though Carlmont’s varsity boys soccer was not able to bring home the Central Coast Section trophy, Carlmont’s track and field team looks to seal the deal this year.

James Schulte, a junior at Carlmont and varsity runner, said “our goal is to win CCS this year.”

Unlike most team sports, rivalries are more personal in track. Instead of having a rival school to compete against, runners face off against other runners of similar speed, which makes rivalries more person to person.

“I think we’re going to do better this year than we did last year because of the huge influx of underclassmen on the team,” said Schulte. Historically, bigger track teams always win more events.

“This year, we are probably going to prioritize the short distance sprinting events, and definitely the pole vault. Coach Brent always prioritizes the pole vaulting event,” said Schulte.

Last year Theo Yeh, a former senior at Carlmont, finished seventh in the pole vaulting event the CCS championships.

Another impressive finish was Elliot Surovell’s first place victory in the 400 meter event.

Despite many of the team’s most successful runner’s graduating last year, the wave of new runner’s, and maturation of last year’s veterans should lead to a successful season this Spring.
