The Davenport West Girls Track Team has their first outdoor meet on Thursday, Mar. 29 at North Scott High School. The girls have been practicing since January. Practices consist of lifting and running around the school hallways when weather is poor.

“My favorite part of track is having fun with girls at practice and meets. They always make me laugh. My favorite memory is breaking five minute and 30 seconds [record] in the mile and feeling like my work paid off. I run because it relieves stress and it is a way to make myself better. Also it is an excuse to eat more pasta,” senior Pam Friede said.

The girls on the team each have personal records that they want to try to beat every meet. Towards the end of the season they hope to qualify for the Drake Relays and State.  

“I enjoy running, but I really like the bus rides because we sing and crack jokes and surviving hard practices while having a good bond with my teammates,” junior Sarah Kakert said.
