The Patterson track team has been making tremendous progress this year. There are over 20 students on the team that do many track and field events. For the past season the team has been expanding, going to new events and breaking old Patterson track records.

There was a track meet on May 1 at City College and Patterson runner Kuran Johnson ran the 100 meter dash, setting a record time of 10.80 seconds. He is now is the fastest in the state.

“I feel accomplished when they succeed but never satisfied. the goal is to be the best in the world.”, declared Coach Ted Smith.

This is important because he is saying he wants the runners to do better then just win. He wants them to be successful in life overall.
