The Beaver Area track and field team has had another excellent two weeks running, jumping, and throwing.
The team first set out for West Allegheny High School March 28. Here, the boys' team beat both West Allegheny and Central Valley. The girls' team lost against West Allegheny, but won against Central Valley.
"We got the job done at West Allegheny, even though it wasn’t necessarily pretty at all times," said sophomore William Lamb. "We need to fill in some holes [hurdling and jumping] in some events."
Next, the team had their only home meet of the entire season April 2—making it their season opener and senior night all in one.
"It’d be nice to have more home meets, but we’re all fine getting out of class early [for away meets]," said senior Donald Hare.
Unfortunately, the boys' team lost to New Castle but won to Montour. The girls' team won against both teams.
"Girls' throwers [in shot put and javelin] did really well at both meets," said sophomore Breanna Trainor.
And now in chili-related news:
Naturally, after a meet as explosive as the one on the home field, the team would want to celebrate; so once again, the boys' team set out to Wendy's for their beloved chili.
By the time they had left the restaurant, the boys had downed 58 cups of chili, and completely drained Wendy's vat of chili. This is, of course, in violation of Wendy's all-you-can-eat policy.
However, the team is not currently prepping a lawsuit against Wendy's.
"It was an amazing experience. I’m ready for round three," said senior and chili team member Christian Hartman.
"We'll easily break 60 next time," said senior Lucas Klenovitch.
It’s nice to see that the team has their priorities straight.
