Carroll Track and Field Team Vaulting Up Standings

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

 

It's a new era for Carroll college track and field. In his first year as Saints' head coach, Harry Clark's program is growing leaps and bounds.

"They're doing exactly what we expect them to do. Not having an indoor facility ourselves, we take meets to get in shape, we take meets to get better," said Clark. "Especially the field events. And the kids are taking advantage of every meet we go to and getting better and better. We're going right up the scales."

The men's track team ranked seventh nationally, along with the women's being ranked ninth, and while these are rankings are something to be proud of, the team isn't close satisfied.

"Our ultimate goal is to be top three if not top two potentially at nationals as a whole team," said senior pole vaulter Easton Padden.

"I feel like not a lot people take us seriously, especially in Montana because there's not a lot of NAIA schools around here," Said fellow senior pole vaulter Marisa Arneson. "So it's really impressive that we were able to achieve that high of a ranking and I'm really excited to see what we can do at nationals."

Nationals clearly on the mind of this team, but it's the new mindset that head coach Harry Clark has been able to instill this season, that has really been the difference in this year's squad.

"He's basically brought us together as a whole unit, and kind of changed our mentality about the event a lot," said Padden. "You know we go out there every time and we're really aggressive and really confident, and that plays a huge part in competition, knowing that you're just as good as the next guy out there and you're going to give it your all every time."

"He just has a lot of experience and he's able to motivate people to work hard and  perform for their team," said Arneson.

With 26 national qualifiers so far, it's safe to say that this program is going in the right direction.
