After struggling with weather against the Broncos, the Redhawks are back Friday and Saturday to compete in the Trojan Relays. “I’m excited to get new times and set new goals to reach for the next meet,” junior Evan Bullitt said.

Due to the weather complications of track and field’s last meet, they will be running again this Friday in the Trojan Relays, hosted at Standridge Stadium in Carrollton.

“This was supposed to be an off week for us,” head boys coach Robert Thayer said. “But since we missed the opportunity to run last weekend, we went ahead and put ourselves in a meet Friday so that our athletes who didn’t get a chance to run last weekend could have the opportunity to do so this weekend.”

With the weather delaying opportunities last weekend, junior Evan Bullitt is excited to get back out on the track and try new things he was hoping to do last weekend.

“I’m excited to get new times and set new goals to reach for the next meet,” Bullitt said. “This will be my first 4×1 in high school, since I’m mainly a 200 and 400 runner I hope to be a good asset to the 4×1 team. I also usually run the 4×2 and 4×4 but this week I have to run the open races instead of the relays so I see it as my chance to set new personal records.”

The weather, a challenge for the last meet, may be an advantage to the Redhawks this week according to head girls coach Kheara Vay.

“There should be really good competition and beautiful weather which will hopefully put us toward faster times,” she said.

For athletes that were able to run in the previous meet, Thayer believes they can push through the meet this week and build their strength.

“The athletes that did run last week are a little fatigued but that’s okay because I want them to run with fatigued legs now because later in the season it’ll help them stay stronger,” Thayer said.
