The time for spring sports is here, and the Audubon track teams are getting pumped up for their track season. Team track practices started Mar. 3. According to track member Kaitlin Andersen, both the boys and girls track team usually practice every day after school. Andersen said, “Warmups are started in the Activity Center of the school and because of the beautiful spring weather, we have started practicing outside earlier than normal.”
Mitchell Nelsen, a member of the boy’s track team said, “The hurdlers started Feb. 24, but the whole team started Tuesday, Mar. 3. We practice the same amount as the girls team, every day after school.”
The track teams are pushed to their limits during practice, getting better and better each time. Nelsen said, “I believe this season will be very successful. We have some great athletes returning and some good ones coming up for their freshman year.”
Everyone in track is talking about the hard practices, but it pays off for them during competitions. Andersen said, “Right now, I think we are looking to have a fairly successful season.” It’s a mutual feeling that this year both track teams are going to have great seasons, and everyone is looking forward to the season ahead.

It’s that time for spring sports to start again. Among those spring sports are tennis, track, and golf. The girls golf team has been to State the past couple years, but this year could pose a challenge because of their lack in numbers. The girls team has four members: Macy Wagner (junior), Jorja Weitl (junior), Alexis Fassino (sophomore), and Alexis Fabian (sophomore). The boys golf team never fails to have a full team and then some.
Newcomer Macy Wagner said, “I’ve never done the sport but it should be fun."
“Jorja is going to be our strongest golfer this year, because she has been out for three years and played even longer outside of the team,” Wagner said about their winning strategy this year. They have been successful in the past, so hopefully their strategy works for them again this year.
The boys golf team is another story, with an overabundance of golfers, hopefully they will have some success this year just like the girls teams in the past.
