The Monarchs Track and Field team made the most of an ever changing track season and achieved high levels of success. Head Coach Zander Pollack remarked on the culmination of the season, "I am beyond happy with how the team did this year. I know it was challenging but they did everything they could to squeeze the most success they could out of it. Although we are losing a very talented class of seniors, I know the program is still in good hands with the other grades. I am already looking forward to next season and can't wait to see what they will achieve."
