Spring Preview: Sports

The boys track team is headed into a very exciting season. There were several fulfilling performances throughout the winter season such as the 4x400m relay competing at states and the 4x200m relay making it all the way to Nationals.

“I think that we have a chance at becoming this year’s league champions. I expect that our 4x100m, 4x800m, and 4x400m relays qualify for districts and more. There should also be at least one representative from the field at districts and beyond,” said Coach Pierangeli.

“I see this as being the most rewarding and successful season of my east career” said sprinter, Roman Messina.

The 4×800, DMR, and 4×400 competed at the PTFCA Indoor State Championship. Here, the 4×800 placed 3rd in the state. This 4×800 consisted of Paige Dougherty, Lilly Norcross, Madison Epstein, and Ava Mignon setting a new school record with a time of 9:33.20.  And at nationals Melayna Pettigrew, Madison Epstein, Paige Dougherty, and Ava Mignon setting a new SMR school record of 4:10.96. Thanks to all of the girls’ hard work, they created a memorable season, and are ready to bring just as much passion and positive energy into the spring season expecting to compete at leagues, districts, and states once again.
