Freshmen Leading Now, Not Later for Carroll Track

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -
Coming in as a freshman athlete in college can be tough for a lot of athletes to adjust to.
 
With freshman coming in they have to come in with the really good attitude one would say, because they're used to winning all their events in high school and you come into college and you're going to get throttled for a while.
Some athletes are the exception to that rule, making it all the more impressive. Two freshmen sensations on the Carroll Track and field team are distance runner Leah Esposito and pole vaulter Terah Cundith.
 
I didn't really expect to be doing this well I mean I was hoping to improve for the first year and hopefully improve for the next four years. But it feels great to be doing better than I thought I'd be doing.
 
It's a good feeling. I don't know, I work hard and so I think I deserve it but it's definitely just a good feeling.
The best part for both Leah and Terah, they both grew up right here in Helena, going to Helena High.
 
It feels kind of like high school again. I mean we're going to the same track, doing a lot different workouts. But it just feels kind of the same.
 
It's good because the whole community has been supporting me for the last four years and so they're going to continue to support me and that just makes it a lot easier I think.
As far as the splash these two have made, Terah set new personal records in vaulting height while Leah is now the Carroll record holder in both the 1500 meter and the 3000 meter.
 
It's their own personal pride of getting better every week. Not just for one meet a year, it's every week they try and get better, and that's what makes them stand out.
While most freshmen are looking to blend in, these two are certainly standing out.
