If you look at the Everett High School boys and girls track records for what they are, a lack of wins might make it seem like the team isn’t on top of things, but head coach Jehu Cimea isn’t worried about records as much as he is overall effort.
“All our athletes try their best for us each meet we’ve had,” said Cimea, in his third year at the helm for the Tide.
Following Tuesday’s loss to Malden High School, the boys dropped to 1-2 and the girls to 0-3 overall, respectively. The lone win for EHS came last week in a 48-38 triumph over Medford High School.
“Hard work has defined our season so far,” said Cimea, who is choosing to build off effort rather than records with this years team. “Their hard work is paying off. They want to perform their best always and push themselves always,” said Cimea.
A senior heavy group has led the way so far this season, including Lucia Seide, who is undefeated in the 55-Meter and Brendon Previlon, who has won each of his 300-Meter contest. Also leading the way are shot put standouts Kira Gray and Mario Sheard, both have lost only one match this season. Senior Lyanne Murphy is topping the team in hurdles.
Both the boys and girls will hit the track again on Saturday (January 18).
