    Senior Rachel Loreus is a varsity sprinter on the outdoor track team.  She participates in the 100 and 200 meter, long jump, and triple jump. Loreus used to do the high jump and 4 by 1. She has been running for outdoor track since her freshman year while also running for indoor track during her junior and senior year.

    Loreus decided to pursue track her freshman year because she was influenced by her older brother,  who graduated last year as a varsity runner and who ran since his freshman year. What Loreus enjoys about running is the adrenaline she gets at the beginning and end of meets. She states that the feeling between that “is the best thing ever.” Loreus does plan on running in college and is already trying to get on a team.

    Loreus has a lot of personal goals set this year, which includes to beat her “personal record of 13-4  and make it to states.”, while also aiming to improve her endurance. Loreus finds herself feeling winded after doing a 200 meter and hopes to improve on that. With the 100 meter, Loreus won’t find herself as winded and can run it fine. Her strengths include her speed, and well as her performance in the long jump and triple jump.  

    Loreus also expects to face many challenges this year. She, as well as the rest of the team, will be going against many new teams she has never seen before, so she isn’t aware about how good they will be. Loreus finds her most memorable meet to be an indoor meet against their rivals Somerville. They team beat them again for the 4th time and became GBL champions.

    Loreus has a lot of goals set for the upcoming season. She also hopes that many of her expectations are met as well.
