 “State championships do not happen every day,” said Milford High head track and field coach Czar Bloom.

Nevertheless, the team believes that goal to be well within reach after tremendous indoor season. With outdoor season quickly approaching, the athletes have high hopes of doing well, but still have a good amount of work cut out for them.

“This season, I am expecting a lot of things, from people running their fastest times, to the boys and girls winning or being runner-ups for states,” said junior Josh Johnson. “If we can come together as a family, and not just a team, we’ll be the strongest there is, because for every time someone beats our brother or sister in a race, the other family members will pick up where the others could not.”

“I always go into every season with the hopes of winning states,” said Coach Bloom. “But, it is way too early to think about championships; we have a lot of work to do before then.”

Despite some loss of veteran seniors, the team has proven to be extremely strong. Much of the team’s returning talent has already participated in cross country and winter track and field this school year.

“I think we are capable of states,” said sophomore Alexis Groce. “We have many amazing athletes on both sides of the team and have a lot of depth. We just need to pull together, and everyone really needs to give their best effort in all the meets and all their events this season.”

Competing well in the indoor season may prove beneficial to the track team, but nonetheless, according to Coach Bloom, “They are two different animals.” Three key events separate indoor from outdoor track and field, and the Bucs have traditionally done well in each of them. The 300-meter hurdles, discus, and the 400-meter relay exist during the spring and not in the winter, while the 100 meters replaces the 55-meter events.

As for now, the track team can only envision the future and put the hard work in that will carry them to success.

“Right now, we can only talk the talk, but together we can run the run,” said Johnson.
