Track is a sport consisting of several different opportunities for people of different qualifications. Track focuses on running, jumping, and throwing. The Cherokee track team consists of about 180 students ranging from 7th to 8th grade. There are four different coaches; Coach Rios, the seventh-grade boys’ coach, Coach Plank, the seventh-grade girls’ coach, Coach Ross, the eighth-grade boys’ coach, and, Coach Dunn, the eighth-grade girls’ coach.

The track team is open to everyone and they do not cut people. They have had several meets this year and plan to have a few more. They practice every day for two hours outside on Cherokee’s track. Some of the different events are hurdles, long jump, shot put, and sprints.

When asked what her favorite part about being on the track team was, Brynley Brotherton said: “My favorite part about being on the track team is going to the meets and getting to miss school.”  

When I interviewed Coach Rios, I asked him why he wanted to coach track. He told me that he just really loves to coach. When I asked him what he would like to say to a student who might be interested in doing track in the future, he replied: “ It is a new sport to everybody, and it is a great way to make new friends and to expand your interests.” Track is a great option for an extracurricular activity.
