As winter track and field begins, coaches Matt Carpenter, David Coleman, and assistant coaches Dylan Gennovese, Ali Mitchell, and Jeff Destino are preparing for an exciting season.

The team looks forward to training hard for the upcoming meets.

This year, the  track team is the third smallest in the large division of the NEC. Next meet against Peabody includes 207 athletes, while GHS only has 47.

But even though the team has low numbers, head coach David Coleman still has hope.  “We have a lot of talent,” said Coleman. “We just don’t have the numbers.”

The distance team is small this year, with only four members on the girl’s team. Senior Captains Rebecca Pollock and Kory Hurd will guide the distance team throughout this season.

Junior Aidan Cunningham believes that there will be improvement individually.  “The team is strong,” said Cunningham. “Even if we don’t win, we will still improve over the season.”

Last Thursday, the first meet against Marblehead resulted in defeat, with a loss of 11-75 on the boys team and 27-56 on the girls team.  Last night, the team lost to Peabody

Athletes are also training for field events, sprinting events and mid-distance teams. Team captains Kaitlin Marques and Chris MacDonald will help prepare each of the sprinting teams.

Come support the GHS track and field team on Monday in Swampscott at 4 p.m.
