As winter sports at Gull Lake High School come to a close, it is time for spring athletes to begin signing up and getting into shape for their prospective sports. For track and field athletes, this includes registering online for a google form that is available on the track facebook page or is linked here.
Beyond making sure to register to be apart of the track and field team, athletes should begin building endurance and muscle to ensure they are prepared for the season. Lifting in the gym takes place after school on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. For incoming and returning hurdle athletes, Coach Hunt stays after school on Tuesdays and Fridays to help at 4 p.m. in the 1200 hall.
For long distance runners, athletes can either run after school in groups or are recommended to begin getting miles in at home.
“When it comes to track and field, a major component for performing well early on into the competitions is having a strong base of training from working out during the offseason” said senior Tyler Ford.
Beyond signing up to be apart of the track and field team, athletes should follow the previous link provided to purchase any attire they wish to have for the season. Warm-ups will not be provided by the team this year, so if an athlete wants to have them, they must order by the end of March.
No matter what sport Gull Lake students are preparing to participate in, it is essential they are fully prepared for what is ahead.
