SHS Track Club is just that–a club. There are no varsity letters to earn or Region titles to win. Runners participate in track just to see if they can meet the qualifying standard for the District 10 Championship held at Slippery Rock University on Saturday, May 8.
The runners, including seniors Gabe DeYoung and Ben Crowl, as well as several other returners like junior Maddie Mondi, are hard at practice to get ready. They are able to run at MASH’s home meets and various invitationals in the region, such as at Franklin, Fairview, and Hermitage.
Coach Bill Hetrick said, “We are really just a great group of kids who run various distances from the 100-meter dash to the 3200-meter run, to see if they can make Districts.” Senior captain Gabe DeYoung said, “I want everyone to work towards their goals and work hard during practice.”
