Boys Track: The Running Never Stops
Jason Drapinski The Malden High School boys track is preparing harder than ever for this outdoor season. As indoor track came to an end, the runners continue to prepare for this spring’s outdoor track season. For many indoor track members, the season transitioned from indoor track to outdoor track to stay conditioned for the upcoming season. The team continued to practice to ensure that their next season would be a success. According to sophomore Allan La, the team “goes to the weight room two times a week for strengthening [their] cores and [to] also do speed workouts.” They are practicing for their very first meet of the season against Cambridge. Cambridge has always been one of the tougher teams in all sports, but especially in track. The track team is looking for a lot of Malden High student athletes to join outdoor track.The boys team recruited many new freshmen members during the cross country season, in hopes to keep the team strong and continuing for many years. Last spring they had a great season and a number of athletes compete at the all state meet, and the team has similar expectations for this season. Head Coach David Londino is looking to strengthen the team through hard work and consistency. The team keeps the mindset that the harder the team works the better the team will do. They are all putting in their hardest and trying their best to fulfill their goals. The team continues to practice and to strive towards their goal of becoming the Greater Boston League champions once again. On an ever larger scale they also strive to send runners to the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) states meet.
