This season has been particularly challenging for Boys’ Track, as the team has had to learn how to adapt to the change in leadership of a new coach—Coach Scott Stalbaum, head Boys’ Track coach and social studies teacher. With postseason swiftly approaching, Boys’ Track is changing their routine to prepare. The team’s final vision for this season is to advance and send as many of the team as possible to Regionals and, ultimately, to State. According to Coach Stalbaum, the win came as a pleasant surprise in May when the team was at their most fatigued point.

“Everybody’s been excited about how successful we’ve been,” Coach Stalbaum said. “We sometimes throughout the season struggled a little bit with field events, specifically our throws and jumps. Going into the meet, we thought we might lose. When we won (Conference),  the coaching staff was really happy that we came out  on top.”
