Well folks it is now February of the new year and track season is creeping up on us fast. With basketball and wrestling finishing up we are looking forward to getting back outdoors and being able to feel warm once again. We have a lot of events for you to choose from, whether you’re returning from previous years or this is your first time trying it out.
There are the regular track events that you can take part in. They mainly consist of 100 meter, 200 meter, or the 400 meter. If you would like to mix it up a little bit you can do the girls 100 meter hurdles, boys 110 meter hurdles, or the boys/girls 300 meter hurdles, this last one is a bit more of a challenge I’d have to say.
If you are more into long distance running you can take part in the 800 meter or the 1600 meter, which is an entire mile. Juab has a good amount of people that can do this and always try their hardest. We are always welcome to more newcomers that can help out in any way they can.
There are also medleys that you can take part in. We have you 400 meter, 800 meter, and 1600 meter medley. If you don’t know what a medley is, it is really just a group of four people that each take part in running the entire race while trading off a metal cylinder called a baton.
If you aren’t into track as much, that’s ok, maybe you want to try the field sports. They consist of Throwing the discus, javelin, or shot put. If you would still like to run a little bit and can either jump really high or far, you might want to try out long jump and high jump. These are both field events that work more with jump strength and momentum, rather than speed.
The track season of 2022 begins the 22nd of February right after school. Invite as many people as you can and we hope to see you there for another great year of track.
