Breaking Records and Building Team Spirit

The Hackett Catholic Prep track and field team has a recent history of success and hopes to sustain this in the future. 

The Hackett men's track and field team has won back-to-back state championships the past two seasons. With this immense success, the team hopes to carry the success over to this year.

This success is made possible not just by skill but by a great culture. Junior sprinter Jude Coffman said about the culture, “Sustained winning like this doesn’t just happen, we need everyone to buy in.” The team has a culture of togetherness that transcends individual events that Senior Gavin Sehy even called a “familial culture.”

The men's team has had 4 meets so far this year with high-place finishes in all and first-place finishes in 1 of the 4 meets. Among the high-place finishes is a 3rd place finish in an invitational with much bigger competition of Division II and Division I schools. 

The men’s distance team has stood out so far this year. This includes the 800-meter relay team which has come in first place at three out of the four meets. A decorated member of this 800-meter relay team, Adrian Commit, Senior Nick Doerr said, “It is a solid start to the season with a lot of PRs, but there is still a lot of room for growth.”

The girl's team has had a good start to the track season as well. They have also had high-place finishes in all of their meets. 

The track team looks for more success in their next meet on Friday, April 19 in Allegan.
