Denfeld Track

 

    The school year is  just 2 months away from being over, and spring sports are a little over one month into their season, there a lot of excitement from track participants at Denfeld,particularly one Denfeld senior and multi-sport athlete at Denfeld, Noah Jackson, who has also played all 4 years of Football and Track. Originally,Noah used track to get in shape for the football season, but ended up falling in love with the sport and has done it ever since. When I asked Noah what his favorite meter race to run in he said “I love running the 200 meter dash because it is my fastest race” . We all know from the time you start Denfeld as a freshmen and when you get to your senior year and look back and realize how much has changed, so when asking Noah about what has changed about track since you started he said  “Different coaches new faces a different outlook on track as a sport” . As most people do when they are playing a sport they set a personal goals one of Noah’s goals was “My other goal is to clear 13 feet in pole voting this year” , When talking to Noah about his Number one goal was to “One of my goals is to improve and get faster for this season and hopefully go to state”  . And When asking about Noah’s future with track he replied “well it’s fun and it sucks because I don’t know if i am going to run track in college” . When looking back at the 200 meter dash records for Denfeld it is interesting with the fastest time was 22.67 seconds in 2008 which is 2 seconds behind the state record and is kinda impressive considering how many schools and runners there are in minnesota. There is no doubt that track is one of the top 3 popular sports in the springtime. And the best time for a girl at Denfeld in 200 meters was 25.66  in 2009. Best time for 1600 meter race for Denfeld mens is 4:34.69 in 2012, and for the women’s 1600 meter record at Denfeld was 5:35.54 in 2016.know these are records and athletes Denfeld should be proud to have and records that can stack up against the state’s best time in meter dashes. Denfeld has great track program with many talented athletes. And has a long list of records that have been held for years. Who knows these records could be broken any year and would be a great accomplishment, to happen. With the great school traditions and sport programs,really nothing is out of the picture.
