Mid-season Track and Field is Looking Better Than Ever

Rachel Willison, Reporter

On Thursday, April 19, the Blanchet Track and Field Team took on Nathan Hale, Lakeside, and Roosevelt at Nathan Hale High School, with many stellar performances from a myriad of Braves.

The Braves have reached their mid-season mark, and with Metros right around the corner many of Braves are pushing themselves to do their best in hopes of qualifying for Metros.

Boys distance coach Thomas Albes was incredibly impressed with all of the standout performances and PRs broken and this past meet.

“We competed really well at our latest league meet,” said Albes. “From a distance perspective, we had several personal records in the 800, 1600, and 3200 meter runs. The best part was that the personal records came from the freshmen-seniors. From a team standpoint, it was great to maintain are undefeated mark in league meets this season.”

Senior Will Fleming was one of the many Braves that broke his personal record in the 800m event.

“The meet went really well,” said Fleming. “I placed 2nd in my heat of the 800, running a PR and making it on the all-time list at Bishop Blanchet.”

Junior Adele Peck also PR’d in the 3200m event, and is looking forward to the next few meets.

“This meet went really well,” said Peck. “I ran my fastest time of 14.08 in my 3200m event. I am looking forward to the next few meets and possibly breaking a few more PRs!”

Up next, the Braves take on Seattle Prep, Ingraham, and Franklin at Ingraham High School on Thursday, April 26 at 2:45pm.
