On Tuesday, April ninth, the New Haven track team went to their first medal meet in Union. The top six of each event medaled at the Union Relays. The top two athletes of each event from New Haven went to the meet.
Logan Senecal, a sophomore, participated in discus. When asked if he was ready for the first medal meet, he said, “I would say so-- it was nice seeing the competition there. It was a little intimidating because there were guys there who looked like they could throw farther than I could.”
Emma McIntyre, a sophomore, participated in the four by eight hundred and the mile. She was asked the same question and responded with, “No, I was very nervous for it and feel like I could use a little more practice.”
Kayla Brummels, a junior, participated in the four by eight hundred and the eight hundred. She was asked about how a medal meet is different from a practice meet. She said, “The practice meets were kind of easy. When we got to the medal meets, there were a lot more experienced runners there.”
Alaina Scott, a sophomore, participated in high jump, hurdles, and pole vault. She was asked the same question and responded with, “The medal meets are more challenging because there is a lot more competition since everyone is trying their hardest to medal.”
Good luck on the rest of your season, New Haven Track team!
