The 2024 Girls Indoor Track Season

By: Siri Iagnemma



As the weather slowly starts to warm up, the 2024 winter sports season is coming to an end. This past week marked the end of the dual-meet season for BHS girls indoor track. The team had the luxury of competing at the New Balance collegiate track in Boston for the second year. The team had an amazing season with training by long-time coaches Mr. Olowinski, Becca Pizzi, and a new addition, Ms. Baldwin. 

As a whole, indoor track features more than 15 different events ranging from long jump to two mile runs. Teams compete to take the top places in each event and add up the most points to win. This makes indoor track a uniquely individual and team sport all at once. Both the JV and varsity girls teams had strong entries in the full range of events while competing against the 11 other teams in the Middlesex league. The team was led by senior captains Marykate Brady, Kelsey Donaldson, Kate Anderson-Strain, and Diana Kalantar.

The team fostered a strong sense of sportsmanship and spirit this year, as captain Marykate says, "I'm very proud of the hard work and camaraderie we've built as a team, we have a lot of underclassmen talent, so our future is bright!" 

Individual athletes also made the most of this season with tons of personal records and qualifications. Senior Kate Anderson-Strain qualified for the Massachusetts state meet in the 300-meter dash, the 4x400 relay also qualified for the state meet, and junior Dana Lehr qualified for indoor track national championships in the one- and two-mile races.

Just this past week, the varsity team closed out their season with a tie against Winchester on Monday. The team looks forward to closing out their season with the JV and Varsity league championships on 1/25 and 2/5 respectively!
