Hard Work Pays Off for US Winter Track Team

Congratulations to our Upper School Winter Track athletes who have worked hard this season. When possible, the team trains outside. However, on many afternoons you will find them in the athletic wing or school hallways working on their strength, endurance, and form. Under the leadership of Tara Morrin and Jack Dias, Winter Track is an adaptable team! Two athletes, Niladri Aich '19 and Patrick Lyell '20, qualified for the state meet. Niladri placed 21st in the triple jump with a jump of 34'1". This is impressive since Niladri only participated in triple jump twice before the state meet and had to practice in the hallway due to weather. Patrick placed 9th in the 800m run, one spot away from making the podium. He was close to a personal record with a time of 2:03.11.
