Track Thoughts and All-Time Top 3
The ReSporter will go over some Track thoughts the next few days as they prepare for next week’s District 26-4A Meet in Cuero.
Second off, the Hawks have more Senior participants this year and that has been paying dividends for both the girls’ and boy’s teams.
That has been one of the most disappointing aspects of track as those Seniors usually get a hint of Senioritis and forego the last part of their year not on the cinders or many sports.
The ReSporter’s advice for those young people that read this site, “You only live once and that Senior year can be rewarding to finish your race in grand fashion.”
Speaking of finishing races, both of the Hawk’s Varsity contingent have won multiple meets this year and for the ladies, that accomplishment had never been in the cards as this group of ladies have dealt two aces this year in that realm.
For this piece, we will go into how Canyon Lake holds up with the other District 26-4A schools for the upcoming meet this Wednesday and Thursday in Cuero.
The ladies don’t have a lot of Dash events point potential, but Alysha Perez has had some good runs this year and getting any type of points is a big lift.
There are some areas the Ladies are not on the radar in getting points. Long distance races is one of those areas as well as pole-vault, discus, and shot-put.
Where Canyon Lake can take off is in those hurdle and relay races. Scoring multiple points here will make up for those no point times during the track meet.
Triple Jump and High Jump would be other events the Hawks can load their basket going to that first place podium.
That is why any points scored in those other running and field events can and will be the difference in several spots in that pecking order.
This will be Canyon Lake’s best chance since the school started in having a chance for a district championship.
On the boys side of things, Canyon Lake will be in a tight race with several teams and there are many things that can happen to sway those points going or coming.
The Hawks or any of the district teams will need to have a near perfect day in order to have a chance for a title.
Much like the Ladies, the Hawks hold do well in the hurdle and relay events. Canyon Lake’s depth has a chance for points in every event but the pole vault where the Hawks have not had any success this season.
Scoring points in every event is a sure way of making a run for the district title as Yoakum will also have a tough team to upend after their District Championship last season.
A strong Junior Varsity squad will also give both teams a chance to get points while sacrificing the JV for a chance for a title. However, the Varsity trumps the JV and getting any points might be the difference for the Varsity.
Yes, those athletes that make the jump would lose a chance for multiple points for the JV, but the key goal is having a chance to win with your Varsity team.
Canyon Lake Boys had their 4×200 and 4×400 compete in Austin this past week in the Texas Relays.
You might have heard this before, but those two relay teams were dominated by a core of younger athletes and the future continues to build momentum.
For the Freshman, those athletes are technically classified as Freshman but since August and the start of school and now is a lifetime and those students are at a stage of showing you what next year can and will be.
Go Hawks and good luck this week in Cuero!!
