The Summit track team started as they started the cross-country season: quietly but successfully and there was a clear progress as the season went on. Have a look at these results.
On 20th March, 2019: it was Bend v Summit. The team did well but note Jim’s comments:
“The team ran well in 40+ degree temperatures: they had 3 of the 800 girls in the 400 and the girls 4×400 team entirely made up of distance runners. In the girls 1500 – Jim told the 14 year old to to go out in 80’s at the front but she went 34 for 200m and was approaching 400 around 71. Jim had to stand in front of her in lane 1 to slow her down; her next lap was 84 seconds. “She will be tough to beat when she learns pace”

Came 22nd April and this was the Summit Invitational Meet. A very good meeting, the results are at https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/meet/348794/results . This was followed by the Nike Jesuit Twilight Relays on 3rd May where Jim’s comments were:
District championships were next with two to qualify for the State Championships. Unfortunately for the runners the wind was strong, gusting up to 20 mph. The men’s team did OK with sprinters Jaden Maydew and Dylan La,mbert doing well in the sprints but the result of the day for Summit had to be the girls 800m final: timed at first, second and fourth in the epreliminaries, they went on to be first, second and third in the final.
