With the start of the Track Season, athletes have worked hard to prepare for the sport through Polar Cats, an informal club that was helped organized by Tom Polak, track coach.
“It’s mostly motivation, and it’s not just track; it can be for people who just want to get fit and work hard,” Coach Polak said.
Outside, in the freezing air, members would run around the school to train for the upcoming sports, especially Track.
Polar Cats started the first week of November and ended on Jan. 25 when the track season started.
“I joined for track, but it also helped me personally. It built up my confidence, self-esteem, strength, and now because of Polar Cats, I’m better prepared. Everyone was really nice and helpful, and I got to meet new people,” Felipe Trujillo, freshman, said.
Coach Polak encouraged many staff and students to join.
“It doesn’t have to be track only, anybody can join,” Coach Polak said.
