Athletes prepare for outdoor track season.

Spring has begun which means the girls and boys track and field teams are transitioning into the outdoor season after a successful indoor track season.

The indoor track season started on Jan. 17. During the month of January, the athletes were preparing for their meets in the upcoming months. The indoor season consists of ten meets with the first being the Redhawk Pole Vault Invite held at Naperville Central High School. 

The second meet was the Jerry Lowe Boys Invitational held at Rockford Auburn High School on Feb. 3. This season opener for the boys track and field team was a success, as Daniel Foy placed first in the pole vault with a height of 3.35m and the team left with an 11th place finish out of 19 teams.

The Lady Raiders Quad Meet was the girls’ season opener and was held at Bolingbrook High School on Feb. 15. First-place finishes include Nell Fedko in the junior varsity 1600m, Niki Tselios in the varsity 1600m, Payton LeFevers in the varsity shot put, Natalie Kowalski in the junior varsity shot put, Talia Scoville in the varsity high jump, Savannah Beasley in the junior varsity high jump and Vedika Patel in the varsity pole vault.

This meet did not count team scores, however, both teams competed successfully. 

There are still an additional four meets in the indoor season, including the Lemont Indoor Invitational.

As both teams are transitioning to the outdoor season, they can look forward to the 10 scheduled meets with more to come if they advance in the Illinois State Series.
