Woods Track Club does well at Distance Fest

The Woods Track Club took on Distance Fest at Saginaw Valley State University this past weekend with few numbers, but this didn’t keep the club from performing well. The club added its twentieth qualifier of the season, Josh Smith who ran 4:31.38 in the 1,600 meter run. Moreover, young members represented the team wholeheartedly, Madi Szymanski (5:20.77) and Grace Mitchell (6:37.73) in the 1,600 meter run. Jacob Kochanski represented the boys, running 5:09.33 in the 1,600 meter run. Veronica Zaborney took on the 17-lap, 5,000 meter run, finishing with a time of 24:18.5.

“We have a lot of young men and women on the team who work hard day in and day out. I can’t wait to see what their futures hold,” Woods coach Kolin Ghidoni said.
