Interview with Derek

by Zion Reyes

For my beat this week, I will be asking varsity cross country athlete Derek Tingey about track preseason and what his plans and goals are going to be for this year’s track season. Here are the questions I  asked him: What are your goals for this year’s track season? Are there are specific schools or people you want to beat? What are you going to do this preseason to prepare?  The following paragraph will be his answers in respective order.

This track season I want to win our league meet for the mile and 800m. I want to make it to CIF finals. I also want to beat Grossmont during our duel in the mile and 800m and I want to beat Brady DeHaven in the mile at our league meet because he’s the top returner. During the preseason I’m going to do a lot of intense workouts and strengthening so that I’ll be strong enough to win.
