Loyola Track Looks Promising for Upcoming Season

Jack Garrigus, Writer

The Loyola Track team is looking to defend their terrific streak of five consecutive titles in the 2019 season. The track program has been dominant for a long time, and the team’s prospects are looking quite good for the upcoming season. Coming off a terrific cross country season, the entire team is excited. However, several key members, especially in the field events, have been lost to college.

Senior Jack Lynch explained, “If Loyola can put together a strong team from distance to sprints, and arguably most importantly field, then they can run away with a [title].”

Several teams look to break the streak, including St. Laurence, Providence, Marmion, and Brother Rice.

Senior Eli Miller summarized, “This year will be a redemption year of sorts. We truly believe we can add a sixth straight championship this year. One of the key pieces is Jack Loveland in the 400, along with Lynch and Spencer Dzyacky in the 1600. If everyone does their part, everything should come into place come early May.”

All the evidence points towards another successful track season for Loyola.
