The Future is Bright for Track and Field: By Rebecca O’Callaghan ’17

The Kennedy Catholic track and field team’s spring season is looking bright. With the addition of their newly renovated, 400 meter track, they are eagerly working hard to reach their new season goals. Under the leadership of senior captains Kenny Brown and Rebecca O’Callaghan, the team aims to improve their times, jumps and win medals in their events. They started off strong at the Iona Prep Developmental and Tusker Twilight Invitational with medals being won by junior Deirdre Kokasko and freshman Kayla Curtin in the triple jump and long jump. Medals were also received by freshman Janine Gayanelo in the discus throw and senior Rebecca O’Callaghan in the 400 and 200 meter dashes. Returning upperclassmen Silvana Acierno, Catherine Brennan and Nick Goebelbecker have also performed well in the beginning meets. With the team being predominantly made up of underclassmen, it is exciting to see what the future holds.  Sophomore Michael L’abbate and freshman Trish Curtin are working hard on improving their miles and are sure to be key components of the team. The assortment of talents on the team has also allowed for great relay teams. Many members of the team have their eyes set on setting new personal records and qualifying for States. The energy throughout the team is definitely one of determination and excitement. Overall, the Kennedy Catholic Gaels are happy that the spring season is upon them and are practicing hard in anticipation for their CHSAA championships in May.
