Eagles’ track team includes eight returnees

The list of returnees for the track team includes only three seniors. “We have a very young team,” Coach Jarren Morlan noted, “with eight returnees, three of them sophomores, along with 11 newcomers.”
Seniors Luke Bonnett and Cameron Currence both competed in the state meet last season. Both are shot putters and discus throwers, and Bonnett finished second at the state level. The third senior is Tristen Brown, a sprinter.
Connor Capron and Drina Kearns are the only two juniors on this year’s track team. Capron runs mid-distance---400 and 800 meters. Kearns competes in shot put and discus. Sophomore Kaleb Brown runs the 800 and the mile, while Wesley Davis competes in the mile and two mile races, Coach Morlan reported. The other sophomore, Jasmine Leake, runs the 400 meter.
Coach Morlan sees his newcomers as “coachable.” He said, “They’re eager to learn the correct way of doing things and are all hardworking.” The coach added, “It’s still tough for them to grasp the techniques I want them to know, the ones they’ve never had to learn. They have a lot of potential to be developed.” Continuing with “I’m excited to see what the season holds,”
Coach Morlan said, “It’s almost a new team.” The Eagles open the season with a two-day meet at Bridgeport this weekend. The coach expects to see 12 or more teams and said, “The competition is always strong in that meet.”
