East High’s Track and Field team has been on a downward spiral as of the past 5 years, but there's hope! According to “Section V Track and Field” there have been 18 different male competitors and 16 different female competitors from East that made it to sectionals since 2015. Compared to other city schools that is a drastically low amount of people. For instance Edison has had 31 different male competitors and 20 different female competitors compete in sectionals in the past two years alone. This goes to show that Track and Field has become irrelevant here at East for the past half-decade.
East now has a couple of new transfer students and they're looking to contribute to the team instantly. The team is filled with a good mix of youth, experience and a bunch of hard workers to go along with some exceptional coaches. Coaches that never put you in a predicament to fail and if you do fail they’re always on your back to make sure that the next time you step on the track you will prevail. Maybe this is the year that East gets back on “track” and achieves the goal of winning a championship.
