Both boys’ and girls’ indoor track have been successful all season long, whether it’s on the track or on the field. Tons of young players have come out and have surprised, including junior Alexander Schmidt, who’s a 300-meter runner looking for a personal record PR.


“In the 300, Alex Schmidt has hopes of breaking 37 seconds, which is the state [championship] qualification,” senior Andrew Leverenz said, “We’re also looking for our 4×200 relay team to capitalize and set a PR.”


Leverenz is also a runner looking to increase his speed for this weekend’s meet.


“I’m running 200 meters on Saturday so I’m running 300 and 500 meters at practice to give me endurance,.” Leverenz said., “Like always, speed is built in the weight room and by technical training.”


On the girls’ side of track, junior Abbey Green, who competed in came off of a national cross country meet in California, may have had a delayed start to the season, but believes that she and the team can work hard for this weekend.


“I think we’ve been doing pretty well and everyone’s been working really hard,” Green said., “This season’s so short that you’ve just got tota get into it.”


With the Montgomery Invitational this Saturday, another important event coming up is the MCPS County Championships Is on Wednesday.


“We have a really competitive county,” Green said, “There are two teams that are really really good, so we just have to work really hard like we’ve done all season.”


Indoor track is really dedicated to succeed and go to states once again. Although it’s a short season, the team has come together to prepare for the meet  ahead.
