My experience on the track team has been really awesome!

I’ve never been on a track team before, so I was excited about the first couple of meets on behalf of the  Lighthouse Christian Academy in Santa Monica.

I always get complimented on how fast I can run, so this year I decided to join the team. This is my junior year.

Because this is my first year, I wasn’t really sure on what to expect, but everything was so much fun! I never thought I could beat in a race Levi, one of our fastest runners. But with a dedicated mindset and some training, I was able to gain confidence and leave him in the dust.

Not only does our coach encourage us but he also has the patience to deal with some of us that get out of hand. Coach Lucas is so good at what he does; he teaches us important things on and off the field, from lifting your knees to get more speed to being respectful and listening to teachers and family.

Editor’s Note: This was the first year that Lighthouse had a track team.
