With the new track season, Santa Fe’s team has a significantly larger amount of coaches who help the team be well rounded for the year. Two months into the track season, two records have already been broken for both the 1 mile run and Pole Vault.

Coach Hawkins feels confident about this year as they have an increased number of staff this year.

“We don’t have very many seniors, but we have a really good sophomore and freshman class.” Sprinter coach Kyle Hawkins said. “Another thing that is new is that we have the runner jog to a new hill in the Trail edition which is a better workout than previous years.”

The transfer between off season and on season track was different because of the increased amount of coaches. As a result, the staff this year can focus on developing expertise in their areas of coaching.

“Track is a good program, I love how the coaches are dedicated to their work,” Lee said. “ Especially coach Hawkins, he has kept up with me as I have been in track the past four years making sure I had all of the equipment I needed to move up.”

Lee participates in track in field for both the school and also outside of Santa Fe within a recreational club. His track year is already off to a good start, Keenan Lee broke his previous Pole Vault record.

“I’ve set the record at 14 feet 6 inches right now, what I’m looking to accomplish going into outdoor is to pass 15 feet which is the outdoor record this year,” Lee said.

Shay Burke has been in distance track since the 7th grade, she accredits her friends and families support for helping her break the record.

“I feel really good about setting the record here,” Long-distance track runner Shay Burke said. “It has been a goal of mine since freshman year. I have really good coaches here at Santa Fe that pushed me to do it.”

This year track has a supportive team of coaches who have helped set new records. As track transitions from indoor to outdoor, coaches are expecting to have a good season this year.
