Wildcats Are Off To The Races

Coach Brittany Schrader & Coach Leon McNeil

 

Wildcat track season is off and running with the first meet held at Dripping Springs middle school on February 21st. Participation was massive with 800 students. The level of competition was intimidating, but the Cats were ready to take on the challenge. 

 

The boys all ran regardless of the circumstances, and every race was finished, which was a win in our book! Teaching the boys that if they start something in life, then they need to finish it and see it through even though it may be hard, and even though they may not come in first all the time.

 

One of the highlights of the meet was when 8th grader Sawyer Barr got the courage and support from his teammates to run his first race ever and finish it!  It's little, memorable moments like this -- pushing kids to exceed their limits -- that makes enduring the very late, very cold night well worth it.
