For the past three years, I have been on the Belen Jesuit Track and Field team. I remember the first practice I attended in sixth grade. It was a hot sunny day, and I met my coach for the first time. His name was Nelson, and he was the coach that pushed me to become a man and helped me become an amazing runner. After weeks of practices, Nelson got an idea of who was to go to the meets or not. Luckily, I was in that group that would attend the meets, and every meet that we ran in, we dominated.

This group consisted of talented long distance runners and fast short distance runners. It was like this for two years – winning almost every meet and becoming the district champions for two consecutive years. These accomplishments granted our group of runners the name “Nelson Elite”. Sadly, after two years of hard work and dedication, Nelson was offered a better position at the University of Miami as a Track and Field coach.

After this we were assigned a new coach. His name was Mr. Jose. Ever since Nelson left, our practices have been really sloppy, but that doesn’t mean that our elite group of runners don’t win every meet. We are still a good team, and I believe we will always be a good team. The events I compete in now are the 100M, 200M, 400M, 4x100M, 4x400M, 100M hurdles, 200M hurdles, and Pole Vault. One major conflict that we haven’t solved yet is how we will compete without any runners on the day of the district championship meet. All of the elite runners will be out on their Close Up trip to Washington D.C. Although the team is going through some ups and downs, we will get through it because that’s what the team has done since the beginning.
