The Malden High School boys track team has many good qualities, including a desire to win.
This season, they faced strong teams in the Greater Boston League (GBL) like as Cambridge and Somerville. With last year’s indoor track record of 4-1, the boys track team has a current record of 2-1. Unfortunately, this year’s MHS boys track team did not secure the GBL championship title because of a loss to Cambridge, but some individual members of the team were able to qualify for the state meet.
For runners, the indoor track season begins before winter. Head coach David Londino explained, “We work early in the season to build strength and endurance. Now we are tapering to become as quick as possible.”
The large number of departing seniors on the track team means it is now as important as ever to develop
talent for the coming seasons. Head coach Jamie Green, who is always trying to recruit new athletes, explained, “We try to speak to athletes from other sports and we use our current athletes to help them understand that there are many events available that appeal to all types of athletes. We also rely on our record of success and hope that more athletes want to share in our success.”
With this in mind the boys track will try to finish their season strong with a great performance at the GBL championship meet.
