At their most recent meet, MSMS’s track team won ten different awards in individual events and both girls’ and boys’ placed fourth overall. The district meet happened on Friday, April 9, in Winona. 

Senior William Shy, who won two awards in the 4×800 meter relay and 4×400 relay, expressed the joy that his team has brought him so far.

“It looks like we had another excellent victory royale,” Shy said. “I really enjoyed this chance to be able to bond with my teammates and I am so excited to be able to go to district next Wednesday” 

Carter Miller, a junior who won three awards, felt excited to be able to run on Friday and was excited to be competing as a team.

“Some were better at some things, and others, not so much,” Miller said. “I can proudly say nobody else was better than me in the 400m dash, as I placed first. Everyone was there to compete and our team did one heck of a job giving it their all.”

Neil Sanipara, a senior, expressed his gratitude for the fun season that he was able to go through during his last year at MSMS.

“This track season I improved a lot and it was so fun. I beat a lot of my personal records and it was a great end to senior year.”Junior Chingun Tsogt-Erdene showed his emotions toward the immense temperature and fun that he had.
