“Respect is earned, not given.” Coach Adam Canning instilled this as his team motto for the 2016-2017 Indoor Track season.
The team, of 40 members, finished 1st in Conference 12, 2nd in the 5A South region, and top 5 in the state.
Being one of the biggest sports at Bird, expectations were exceeded, and goals were achieved. Each team member contributed time and effort through rain, snow, and chilly afternoons, to achieve ultimate greatness.
Aaron Lewis, Javon La Pierre, and Josiah Hill were stand out runners in the winter and are now returning for the spring. The team’s proudest moment was finishing 2nd in the region for indoor; Coach Canning now has his team primed for a run at the state championship this spring!
They warmed up the track through winter, and we can’t wait to see them rise with the temperature this spring.
