Wow what a fantastic week. Ravens are going to the Super Bowl and so is Perry Hall Track & Field. Ok well not exactly, but for the Varsity Indoor Team the Baltimore County Championship is our Super Bowl. This is what they have been practicing hard for. For many they gave up their days off to meet and practice. For other’s they practice during every spare minute. Practicing isn’t just running and stretching, it’s about weight training, building endurance, learning strategy,
how to pace, and when to dig deep for that final kick. It’s about being aggressive and staying your course and not letting the other runners intimidate you. Standing your ground and making your opponent waste their energy to the outside to get around. For relay’s it’s all about timing smooth baton handoff, and trusting your teammate to put the baton cleanly in your hand without you looking back.
While winning county league meets has been great, it has been by no means the ultimate goal. This group of athletes has been fine tuning not only their individual performances but also their relay teams. They have been relentless not only in switching runner’s positions, but also runners. When it comes to the TEAM they put aside their individual feelings for the better of the TEAM. That is what makes this group of athletes so special.
Like the Ravens they are underdogs going into the Championship on Tuesday, January 22nd yet they are not letting that deter them from doing their best to bring it home. Perry Hall Indoor Track & Field Team wants to bring the County Championship home.
If you would please, wherever you are on Tuesday from about 4 PM to probably 9 PM, send your positive prayers and thoughts for Perry Hall Indoor Track & Field Team to bring home the GOLD.
