Perfect display of the huskies’ great start

Girls track has the luxury of competing this year which has them very excited after missing out last season due to COVID-19. They are especially excited this season because it is believed to be a season in which they fight for a top spot in the Big 9 conference along with a trip to the state tournament. What makes these goals plausible is the positive and talented group they have going into this season. 

The Huskies also look to send as many individuals as possible to state according to Christensen.  Girls track head coach, Ann Christensen said, “This year’s team reminds me of a lot of other years – we have great numbers, great young ladies that want to work hard and achieve a lot for themselves and the team, as well as have fun!”

In early season with a talented group like this, teams are able to set great goals for themselves. This year’s girls track team has aspirations to be Big Nine Champions. In order to achieve this goal, Christensen said, “Enjoy the opportunity to compete, support each other and do our best every day.”

The season has started well. Coach Christensen said, “We have a great bunch of girls on the team that are working very hard and are very supportive of each other. Our seniors are showing great leadership and the team is making improvements every meet.”  The Huskies had over 30 personal bests in their meet on April 27th. This will not  be the end of their significant progress according to senior captain Sarah Kingland. Kingland said, “ The biggest strength is the depth of the team. Whether that be sprinters, distance runners or throwers, we can count on everyone to get points during meets.” This seems to be why the Huskies are red hot, either winning or placing second at each meet this season. The next meet is May 20.
