Indoor Track ends most successful campaign ever with VISAA appearance

The 2013 Indoor track and field season ended at the VISAA Indoor Championships held at St. Christopher School in Richmond, VA.  This was the most successful year in school history with school records falling, personal records set for most of the athletes, and a large number of fun memories.  At the VISAA alone, Bishop Ireton athletes earned 3 new school records and 10 personal records (PRs). 

At the dinner after the VISAA meet, Coaches Williams and EveLyn shared with the athletes how proud they were of the team spirit and commitment the athletes showed all season, showing up during winter break in the cold and light rain and snow, giving up their Sundays to go train in the pool, and asking the coaches to add extra practices if they missed a day due to school closings.  This commitment showed in the number of personal and school records in almost every event.  To date this was the largest continuous number of student-athletes to participate in the program in school history and when you factor that the majority of students are underclassmen, the future looks bright.

The following represent the athletes with the 11 new school  indoor records:

 Christiana Grant in the 200 meters, Gabrielle Hall in the 500 meters, Rosie Hartwell in SHOT, Philomena Hughes in the Long Jump, Loren Gant in the Triple Jump, Gabrielle Hall in the 800 meters, Christiana Grant, Gabrielle Hall, Kaitlyn McNutt and, Grace Hersey in the girls 4 x 200, Anthony Mondragon in SHOT, Joseph Sardegna in the 200 meters, Sebastian Gutierrez in the 55 hurdles, and Sebastian Gutierrez in the Long Jump.
