With winter’s end and warmer weather here, Gladiators are seeing the return of the spring sports season.

This year’s varsity track team has sprinted to the top, continuously winning meet after meet. The team is led by Coach Buith and assistant Coach Del Santo with a dedicated batch of runners, composed of both returning and new students.

“The spring track season is going excellent. With Coach Buith coming back to coach the spring track team, the team has been receiving quality coaching and practice during the first half of the season. We have been gradually improving and moving forward. Our team will get very far into divisions and counties. We have very promising runners, and I look forward to seeing how far they can go,” senior Luke Jacob said.
