Teammates all support each other

The Track and Field team had their first meet Jan. 17 and 18 at Texas Tech University.

"I think as a team it went very well for an opening meet that we had," Lexi  Brooks said. "We had exceptional marks for our team. We came out with faster times than we had and people jumped further, so we started off our season pretty well."

Kinsey Coppedge said she is pushing to get her times faster at each meet the team has.

"As a 4x4 (runner) we are trying to get our times down," she said. "We are on the list for nationals but we want to be even faster so we can make sure we get into that."

Coppedge said the team is smaller which allows everyone to be closer.

"We try and watch each other at meets as best as we can," Brooks said. "Not only do we run for ourselves but we run for our team. You constantly hear us [asking] how can we score for our team. It is definitely more minded towards what can [an individual] do for the [team's benefit]."

Coppedge said a lot of people look at track as an individual sport when really it is a matter of being a team and helping each other out.

After their meet this weekend, the team will head back to Lubbock in March to compete in the Lone Star Conference Indoor Championships.
