The 2017 Track Season Comes to a Close. Collingswood High School Seniors Were Given Heartwarming Speeches at Their Last Home Meet.

On March 11th, 2017 the Collingswood High School girls track team competed at a home meet against their rivals, The Audubon Waves, on senior night.  So far the girls have only had two losses, making it a solid season for them this year with only three meets remained.

The meet began with several speeches, which gave coaches the opportunity to thank the senior runners. This year the team said goodbye to Morgan Mcconnell, Zena Saifo, Jabria Evans, and Crismary Saldivar Camarena. One of the most memorable speeches was given by Mr. Swern in complete Spanish to Crismary. Afterwards, at about four o’clock the field events started up and points were beginning to add up. One pole vaulter Josie Cook even hit her Personal Record at seven feet. However, when the running events began the team was already four points behind their goal. The events started off with the 400 hurdles, and went on to the 100 meter dash. This provided Collingswood with a few extra points from Emily Wallace, Taylor Perkowski, and Morgan McConnell. Maddy Giordano, Quinn Basewitz, and Mackenzie Wilhelm also performed well in their mid-distance and distance races.

The meet finally came to a close with Collingswood sadly losing to Audubon by several points. However, the team went home proud of their accomplishments that day, and planned to end the season swimmingly.
