New track, new coach fuel Arvada-Clearmont track and field
CLEARMONT — Arvada-Clearmont High School and Junior High School’s track and field practice began promptly at 4:08 p.m. Wednesday as the Lady Panthers and lone Panther took to the schools’ recently built 200-meter track. After two warmup laps, senior Torrey Veach led the five other runners in dynamic stretches as first-year head coach Tim Rowe and assistant coach P.J. Rozema briefly discussed the plan for the afternoon.
In preparation for the team’s first meet of the season in Buffalo Thursday, the six-athlete group practiced their starts and sprinted close to 50 meters propelled by the ease of running on a home track, the energy from their first-year head coach and the eagerness to compete after the coronavirus forced the cancellation of last year’s season.
“Having to go out there and actually having to compete against someone is going to be really great,” senior Krista Malli said.
