FEAST Track Varsity Girls: Overall meet champs in our first two meets!

The team has been very successful at the meets they have attended thus far. The Varsity girls have started the season undefeated, coming in first place two meets in a row. The rest of the team has also shown strong performances, with the Varsity boys finishing 2nd and 3rd in their first two meets. The JV girls were 2nd, and the JV boys finished in 5th place at their first meets.

NEW SCHOOL RECORDS SET

 

With the first High School track meets of 2021 came several new school records set by the talented athletes of FEAST! KayCee Keller (shown left) broke the former 3200m record with a time of 10:51. Grace Bettencourt broke the school record in the pole vault with a vault of 9 feet! The following week Grace cleared 9 feet 3 inches for another school record vault. A big congratulation to the athletes that have surpassed those before them and set new school records.

Although some of the larger meets the team had hoped to attend have been canceled, morale remains high, and the athletes have continued to train hard and show devotion to their sport. Psalm 128:2 says, “You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.” If the team continues to work hard to the glory of God, they will continue to find success in their athletic pursuits!

March 2021

A SHAKY START – First Track Meet of the Season Cancelled

The FEAST Patriots high school track team had been training and preparing for their first meet for weeks when an unfortunate weather forecast resulted in its cancellation. This was disappointing, but the athletes were ready to move forward and set their eyes on the next meet on the schedule. The first-ever FEAST High School Invitational track meet. While the Patriots have hosted a middle school track meet annually for 18 years, the team has never held a high school meet. The upcoming meet will bring both excitement and a team of dedicated coaches and parent-volunteers who will keep the races running smoothly!

When obstacles appear in our path, it is important to learn to push past them and continue on with hope and determination. The cancellation of meets has been dealt with before in years prior, so our athletes have learned to shift their mindset and view the situation in a positive light. The team will continue to train through the uncertainty and the cold, rainy weather and look forward to the opportunities and warm weather that lies ahead.

CARRYING ON

January 1st, marked the first day of a new season with the annual team meeting. The FEAST Track and Field team is excited to have some meets this year despite the corona-virus still impacting many athletic events. Throughout the year, the FEAST Patriots will continue running, while taking every necessary precaution to ensure the health of its athletes.

The past year of track and field and sports, in general, has been greatly impacted by the corona-virus pandemic. With the national shutdown that began on March 22nd of last year, the previous track season was unfortunately cut short. Many of the Patriots showed dedication to the team by continuing their training in neighborhoods or public tracks and prepared for future seasons by running time trials.

Now, a year later, the corona-virus continues to affect our daily lives. Despite this, we are all grateful that we will be able to run track and field this year. In a time full of so much uncertainty, we can rejoice in the fact that some aspects of our lives will return to normality.
