Shepaug’s indoor track program saw significant growth in the 2016/17 season.  The roster increased from twenty athletes last year to over thirty this season. Along with the returning crew, some new athletes joined, including previous varsity basketball athletes.

Thanks to the increased participation,  transportation will now be provided for the athletes to attend meets, unlike last year. Previously, athletes needed to provide their own rides to the invitationals.

Tara Flaherty will be the head coach of the team for her second year, and Jim Stinson will replace Mike Rivera as assistant coach.

Coach Flaherty feels the team has the potential to make some serious noise in the Class S meet. She claims that “due to the size we have this year, we could do some damage in the state meet. I have high expectations for this year.”

The season officially began on December 3rd and can continue until Nationals in March if top athletes qualify. This year’s focus will be placed on having athletes train properly and build endurance and strength gradually in order to prevent major injuries, which plagued the team last year.

Most of the team will continue competing in outdoor track this spring. Good luck Shepaug!
