It may not look like it outside, but spring has sprung, and with it comes another exciting season of track and field. The Hollis Brookline lineup is looking to place as many athletes in the DII championship as they can, and this year they have the tools to do just that. “Their big challenge right now, getting started with the season, is the weather, with all this snow we can’t use the track and it’s hard to get faculty space,” explained coach Yolanda Flamino, but with a strong group of seniors leading the charge and one of the largest squads in recent memory, the team is optimistic. Senior captain Sam Poisson added, “Track is an individual sport, but it takes teamwork to push yourself and get better.”


Captain Grace Anneser ‘17 echoed his statement. “Having high numbers is a good way to push yourself because practice will be more competitive. As the season goes on we’ll get to know our own strengths and weaknesses.”


The DII Outdoor Track Championships will take place on May 27 at Kennett High School, where the Cavaliers will seek to take down reigning champions, the Souhegan Sabers.
When asked her personal outlook, Coach Flamino had one final statement. “I’m excited about the season. We got some great leaders this year, and I’m looking forward to how they’re going to interact with the team and lead.”
