Modified Track 2019

Christopher Maher, EMC Jr. High Staff Writer

This year in modified track there were 18 members. Some had goals. Some had favorite events. Some had both!

Emma Mitchell learned how to triple jump and her goal was 25′ 8″. She got 25’3″!
Eben Perkins’s favorite event is the high jump.
Christopher Maher likes any  event that allows him to run more than 200 meters. He hopes to beat his  personal record 5:14 in 8th grade.
Steven Monte learned how to jump hurdles and did well in the 55 Meter Hurdle run. His goal is to get his time down to 10 Seconds. He ended the season at 11.5 seconds.

Besides working hard, the team had some fun and laughs. Worms (icky, slimy worms), birds, clumsy Colin–oh my. Some fell on the track while others fell in the long jump pit, face first! A certain someone was stretching and fell on his butt after his foot slipped out from underneath him while he was doing mummy walks!

As you an see, the modified track team had a very fun season this year and hope to have many more funny seasons in the years to come.
