The girls track team has gotten a necessary amount of attention for their success in recent years and now that the track season is coming up, there are high hopes and standards for these talented women.

“We hope to be well-rounded, we have been known the past few years for our sprinters and our throwers but our goal is always to be a well-rounded team. We are hoping to score in all aspects this year,” track coach Tad Remsberg said.

The 4×100 team has made an impact with a successful recent winning streak. 2017, the relay team has included Kalli Anderson, Taylor Antonowich, Savannah Simmons, and Jennifer Andres. Andres graduated last year and the track team is uncertain of who they are going to have replace her.

“We always have to reload from year to year, we always lose some quality seniors. So it can hurt you somewhat but hopefully we have the athletes to replace the ones we are losing,” Remsberg said.

The girls 4×100 relay team have not let their team down for two years straight now and will try and continue the winning streak.

“I think one of the keys to our success is we have a lot of athletes that ran summer track and started running when they were very young,” track coach Tad Remsberg said, “that carried over and really helped us a lot.”

The bond between the four girls can depict their success and how well they work together.

“The bond is so important. I mean, 99.9 percent of the time we will be laughing, but when the gun goes off it’s time to get it done. I love these girls, I mean it is unexplainable,” Anderson said.

Simmons has set a record in the 200 meter dash with a 24.52 time and Anderson set a record in the 100 meter dash with a 11.76 time. Anderson usually runs the first leg of the 4×100 relay and that could potentially determine the rest of the race and how successful they are. Although, Anderson believes that not only is this a team sport, but it is a sport where you have to rely on each other to work hard.

“If everyone does their part and gives it their all then we will be good,” Anderson said.
