LOGAN – From an outsider’s perspective, sports like track and field, and cross country, often appear to be individual sports. Results and finishes are determined by each athlete’s personal performance, rather than as a group. However, ask any runner, jumper or thrower and they will tell you just how wrong that is.
So much of a track athlete’s success comes from the support of his or her teammates. From helping coach them in practice to cheering them on from the sidelines as they compete, the camaraderie and support involved in a single event is what turns these individual performances into team sports.
