The Maggie Walker indoor track teams made school history at meets over the past two weekends. As the Dragons raced to the top of the ranks, school and state records were broken.

At the Virginia Tech Invitational on January 29th, Emma Call (’16) remained unstoppable. She ran the fourth fastest 1000-meter time for any high school girl, clocking in at 2:52.7. Later that day, the 4×400 team composed of Call, Shanthi Hiremath (’16), Khloe Pointer (’17) and Clare Perry (’17) broke the MLWGS school record with a time of 4:06.18. The Dragons also dominated in the field events, led by Hiremath who claimed a second place finish for the triple jump, at 37 feet 11 inches.

The Dragons dominated yet again at the JDL indoor meet the following weekend. Call became the first 2A female runner to break a sub-5 minute mile, finishing at 4:59.6. Ryan Buscaglia (’17) made a name for the boys’ team by breaking the 800-meter school record.

The indoor track postseason begins in mid-February. As the Dragons race towards regional and state championships, these many successes at recent meets will fuel their drive.
