Ashley Ridge High School kicks off its track and field season on Saturday, March 3rd with its first Boys Varsity meet. The boys track team have been hard at work practicing and showing what they’ve got. Meanwhile, the coaches are judging and deciding who has what it takes for their varsity team.

Track and Field practices are two hours a day, Monday through Friday every week of the season. Practices start with two warm up laps around the track and then progress to stretches. Some of the common stretches done are toe touches, back stretches, sprinter arms, and butterflies.

After, the boys break up into categories of what they are training for and start their daily work outs. Work outs are different everyday and are put together by Coaches Green and Quin. Some of the many track and field categories include Long Jump, High Jump, Triple Jump, Throwers, 100 Meter, 200 Meter, 300 Meter, 400 Meter, and Hurdles.

After an interview with Colby Harman, a sophomore here at AR, we got an inside look at the affects of track on an athlete. Colby is on the JV football team and decided to do track to help stay in shape till the start of the football season. When asked about the affects of track on his body, he simply said, “It has both a negative and a positive affect.” He then went on to explain about how track helps build speed in time for the start of football practices.

Track and Field is full of hard work and dedication. The practices are long and full of surprises, but at the end of the day, you emerge with a plethora of great opportunities.
