On Thursday, April 17, Bellbrook High School hosted the Golden Eagles Invitational for Track and Field. The Bellbrook Girls team ranked second overall, while the Boys team was ranked third overall. Oakwood High School ranked first for Girls and Valley View ranked first for the Boys. Though these rankings seem simple, they are achieved only through hard work and determination.
The track team practices every day after school and are currently preparing to face even stiffer competition in upcoming meets. Coach Reinhart stated, “The kids are taking great strides to improve on a daily basis.”
According to Coach Reinhart, there are two types of practices: harder days and easier days. “On the harder days, sprinters run a series of sprints and long distance runners have a more intense workout. The day before meets are the easier days. This allows for the runners’ bodies to get some rest and enable them to perform well during the meet.”
