‘Tis the season for running when there’s breezes. It’s track season! Yeah, you’ve read it right. The Harold L. Richards Boy’s Track and Field season started Jan. 23.

Track and Field participants have been preparing for the season by conditioning in the weight room three days out of the week.

“I think we’re going to do really well. We’ve improved a lot since last year and hopefully we come out strong. All of the guys have been training and being active so we should have some good results,” says senior participant Nathan St. James.

Runners have been working on keeping their bodies intact during the season by eating healthy and staying away from junk food. Even when the weather is bad, it’s still good to prepare themselves by doing workouts at home.

“On Thursday’s we workout in the hallway and we workout in the weight room for about three days. We try to work on our explosiveness and we try to endure our speed while working different techniques. We’ve been working really hard and I’m very excited for the season to start this upcoming February 6, 2018,” says head coach Jeff Kopf.

Conference and state are usually the big events they try to aim for when winning.

“Shepard and Homewood-Flossmoor is usually our biggest competition because they train just as hard and as much as we do and they’re good at what they do in general. This year I feel like I have better chances by making it to state than ever before. I’m more confident,” says senior Willie Tre Lott.
