Junior David Hale has set high standards for himself this year for track. An experienced runner, he has the right mindset to make state playoffs.

Hale, who has run track since his freshmen year, will be a leader on the team this year.

“I’m looking to set my personal best record every meet,” Hale said.

He wants to be ranked top three as a junior at CHS in the all-time records this upcoming season. . Being on varsity might make things a little more difficult for him.

This will not be his Hale’s first time being on varsity though. He was pulled up to varsity towards the end of the season for MPSSAA 4A North Regional Championship. He ran in the 4×100 Relay with fellow Catonsville runners Tiree Holmes, Donnell Jones, and Malik Alawode.

“It didn’t go as I wanted it to, but I’m looking forward to redeeming myself and my team this season.” Hale said

As a freshman, Hale was ranked 4th all time at CHS for 400 meters. As a sophomore, Hale was ranked 8th all time for 100 meters and 13th all time for 200 meters.

But this year he looks to improve these records.

“If I work as hard as I can this year, I definitely can set my personal best record in both 100 and 200 meters.”

Hale is not the only member of the team who sees them being very successful this year.

When asked on how he thought Hale and the rest of the team will do this year, junior Donnell Jones said, “I see a bright future for this team and there’s a lot of speed and talent and I think by the time the season is ends we will be better athletes because of the types of people on the team. I will do my best to push everyone to be there best.”
