Imagine running as fast as you can against a group of kids from other schools. Every week the KCHS Indoor Track team must do this, always pushing themselves to get a personal record at their meets against other local schools. Every day, they show up to practice, ready to push themselves to the limit. Whether it’s running 500 or 3200 meters, this talented group of individuals has strived to be the best. But, what is a team without a coach? Richard Shaw is the coach for Indoor Track, and has been doing a remarkable job. When asked about the season so far, he was very optimistic. “Things are going pretty good. People are lowering their times. We are doing fairly well so far.” All of the runners are very determined, and set goals for themselves every week. Drew Joiner, one of the team captains, had some comments. “The season has been going great. We definitely need more people, though.” Chase Andrew has been doing well, having just joined a week ago. “Tough practices have gotten me back into shape. Actually, I got my personal record [1.25 on the 500 meter race] last meet.” Things are looking great for this group, with Regionals and the State Championships in the future. Sometimes Indoor Track is overlooked, but after people see these young men and women run, they will quickly see how brilliant this sport is. Kyle Roderick, one of the team’s sprinters, was also asked about this season so far. He wrapped it up in one word with a smile on his face. “Amazing.”
