As preseason continues for cross country, the team anxiously waits for their first Almont League race. Head Coach Sandra Rodriguez expects great results when it comes to the first league race at Legg Lake on Wednesday, Oct. 2 considering the team had ran two preseason races already.
“I think they will have great races and will work together as a team and accomplish first or second in league,” Rodriguez said.
To prepare for races, the team explains that there are steps to follow for a successful race. The day before a race, it is important to receive a good stretch and eat carbohydrates for energy.
Rodriguez also emphasizes that in order to run a good race it is necessary to have a good warmup and strides on the day of the race because the body needs to warm the heart.
Also, after losing so many vital seniors last year, many freshmen runners have been moved to the varsity in order to help the varsity team accomplish their goal of winning league. “
We have lost and gained good runners, but other than that, we still have the same goal in mind that we will hopefully accomplish,” sophomore Vivyana Prado said.
