Riverwalk Academy just started its first Track Team. The team allows six through ninth graders join.

Track practices are held Monday through Thursday and start at 3:05 p.m. Mr. Wilson lets everyone know when it's time for Track. The team then walks to the Mods and enters Mr. Wilson's room.

Mr. Wilson and Ms.Foster are the main Track coaches, but Ms. Belk also helps out. Matthew White, Rob LaFortune, and Lilly Fite serve as the Track Team Captains.

The Track Team’s goal is to recruit more members, and they also want everyone to improve their running abilities by the end of the season.

When you join, you are required to bring a water bottle and shorts or leggings to make running easier.

To join, ask Mr. Wilson or Ms. Foster. When you get approval, you must pay a $65 fee for the clothing and for runs/meets.

The next track meet will be Tuesday, Mar. 26, 2019 at Clover High School.

After that, a track meet will be held on Thursday, Mar. 28, 2019 at York Comprehensive High School, and another on Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2019 at the same location.

Be sure to show up and support the Track team!
