With a strong upperclassmen base, and new supportive faces, the boys track team has expectations to come out on top. The team has been progressing well even with the cuts for the first time in eight years. The meet on Dec. 27, 2012 against Everett marked the first win for the team. Sophomore Nahom Ghile along with many others “think that the season is going really well, and many are going to states” which is an honor for the boys track team, and a great accomplishment since it is still early in the season.
On Dec. 29, 2012 approximately 50 athletes went to the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center in Boston to compete in the annual Winter Festival Invitational. The majority were distance runners, however, a few sprinters and hurdlers tagged along.
On Jan. 11, 2013 Lowell Catholic came to MHS’ home track, the Salemwood to face the Tornados. Lowell Catholic is new to the track scene, and wanted to scrimmage a competitive team in order for their runners to get familiar with the feeling of racing. And that meet was yet another win for the team. The 4x200 qualified for the boys track team, a great race for the boys.
