2017 Track Season


Victoria Pattersom, Staff Reporter

More than 50 Dobie track participants participated in four meets against other schools in the district this season. Meets were held at Steele, Alamo Heights and other nearby high schools.


Each participant’s goal is to do better and push harder than they did at the last meet.

I joined track so I could work on speed and conditioning,” said Caleb Syverson, 8th grader.


Track meets usually start with field like high jump and long jump events then end with running events such as the relays, sprints and long distance runs. Meets also usually have more than one heat, or group of runners, but at districts there was only one heat for each run.


Speaking of districts, Dobie did great!. Dobie’s 8th grade girls even broke the record with their 4×2.


“I think we have a lot of potential to win and go to districts,” said Andrew Bailey, 8th grader. Not only did Dobie participants make it to districts, but they placed in multiple events.


“I’m proud of how hard everybody works everyday and the positive attitudes,” said Coach Valenzuela, one of the track coaches.


Track is very difficult sport that requires speed, agility, and flexibility. Each player worked really hard to get their team to districts.


“I feel free when I run,” said Karissa Cano, 8th grader.
