You might see them running along King of Prussia Road or even gliding down the steep hills around campus. Sometimes they wake up at 6:00a.m. to practice in the gym, in order to perfect their running skills. They are a team that you do not here about as often as the softball or lacrosse teams, but their accomplishments should not go unrecognized. These talented athletes make up Cabrini’s track team.

Aside from the grueling weather conditions and tough competition, the track team has managed to come out on top this season. This past Saturday, the team competed in the Collegiate Track Conference at Richard Stockton College in Pomona, N.J. Jason Bull, senior, said, “We’ve had a rough season due to an extended winter; however, things are finally coming around.”

Due to their commendable performance, dedicated runners like Colin Broderick placed fifth on the 400- meter run and qualified for the ECAC championship. Broderick successfully returned after a pensive knee injury earlier in the season. “I got worried that I would not be able to perform at a level, which I am now performing, after coming back from a serious injury.” Jason Bull also placed fourth in the 1500-meter run. Colin Broderick, senior, said, “Most runners are showing that they are dedicated and put their all into the team.”

The track team has two more meets to run, before moving on to the ECAC championship. Even though their meet schedules are not splattered all over campus demanding school support; it is time that the track team be recognized for their outstanding acomplishments.
