I did winter track my sophomore year for the first time.

Do you want to play this sport in college?

Unsure.

Are you committed for this sport?

No.

Ms. Rafferty who pushed me last year to try new things that ended up helping me get to states.

Soccer and outdoor track.

Excited to try and beat a school record and hopefully for Walpole to win the Herget.

To get as many athletes qualified for the post season as possible and win the Herget. Everything comes with hard work and challenging yourself on the track and in the weight room.

Needham is our first meet and they are a strong team so that is our biggest opponent right now.

Yes I believe a ton of our runners will make it very far into post season and hopefully make it to states or further.
