SIS Athletes Set Records in Track and Field Season
Posted 05/17/2018 09:51AM

"Grit, the raw endurance, perseverance and passion that keeps you going despite obstacles." These words, spoken by an anonymous person, embody the 2018 track and field season. SIS athletes of this sport encounter obstacles in many forms, largely demanding academic lives they are working to balance with athletic talents, paired with raw track facilities. In spite of these challenges, the athletes rose to the occasion each practice. We, the coaches, put together demanding workouts for the athletes this season, asking the athletes to dig down in their guts and get gritty. Athletes answered with a good deal of persistence as they pushed through burning muscles, shin splints and rising temperatures to complete the workouts.

This season in particular, many athletes demonstrated passion through doing individual research to learn more about form and technique, even organizing additional practices to work on using the starting blocks.

The season culminated at the ACAMIS meet in Beijing. Despite imperfect conditions, Jamie Fraser, Erick Keck, Titta Korhonen, Alejandra Livingston, Matyas Popelka and Diego Solano ran on to set school records. In an exciting race, Keck broke the 100 meter meet record, a fantastic way to end his high school ACAMIS track and field career.

These performances, along with the great efforts made throughout the entire season of practices, lead the coaches to proudly say we coach a group of athletes with true grit!
