The boys and girls track and field teams will head to Prosper High School today to compete in the Dan Christie Relays. Several teams are attending this meet including, Mckinney Boyd, Frisco Lone Star, McKinney North, and many others.

The 3200 meter run and the field events will start at 12 pm. All of the other running events will start at 2:30 p.m.

Sophomore sprinter Jake Chamberlin said the team has been working hard in preparation for the Prosper meet and other upcoming meets.

“We’ve been preparing with straight conditioning because we want to make sure we are in shape for the other meets,” Chamberlin said.

The sprinters last competed in the Robyn Hill Relays in Royse City while the distance team competed at the Lovejoy Spring Distance Festival.

Chamberlin, had an outstanding meet winning all three events he entered. He set season bests in the 100 meters (10.97), 200 meters (22.52), and the 400 meters (50.20).

“We did way better than we expected,” Chamberlin said. “Our varsity boys placed first overall with just sprinters and no distance runners.”

Boys track coach Tim Denton is extremely impressed with his team’s performance this season.

We have had an excellent first half of the season, and our track team is as balanced as I’ve been around,” Denton said. “We have won two of the three full meets we’ve competed in by winning field events, distance events, relays, and sprinting events in each of our meets.”

Distance coach Greg Christensen has his distance runners working hard in practices.

“We are continuing to do good work on the road and track for workouts and everyone is working hard to be in position for a great district meet,” Christensen said.

Senior distance runner Noelle Franz said her team has competed very well this season.

“I think our team has done really well this year and we have had a lot of younger girls step up and benefit our team in a big way,” Franz said. “Our goals this year are to win the district title and meet all of our individual goals.”

Next up for the teams are the Texas Relays at the University of Texas at Austin next Saturday, April 1.
