Belmont Hill’s varsity track team is off to a hot start this season. With stellar victories over BB&N, Nobles, Roxbury Latin, and St. George’s early in the season, the team is one of the ISL favorites thus far. Captain Matt Goguen is quite confident in his teammates: “The team is very solid this year. While we lost a lot of talent with the 2018 graduating class, our guys are working hard and we have expectations to win it all.” Captains Isaiah Gomes and Matt Goguen, Senior Justin O’Neill-Riley, and Junior Greg Desrosiers are all expected to perform exceptionally in their respective events.
However, while the track team indeed has its fair share of individual stars, they really thrive due to the amount of depth in the program. As track veteran Izzy Porro phrased so eloquently: “The depth of the program really allows for every individual to shine and reach their fullest potential. There is never a shortage of guys willing to step up to the challenge and leave their mark on the meet records.”
All in all, Belmont Hill’s track team is on track to perform quite well this year, their eyes set on the ISL championship trophy. The path they’ve laid out for themselves, with Mr. Harder at the helm, makes achieving such a goal extremely attainable.
