“Despite the training challenges and obstacles that COVID-19 has brought the team, we have been able to adapt and come out even stronger than before,” Levin said. “It feels great to be back in competition.”


Levin participated in the 1600-meter, 800-meter, 3200-meter, and 4×400-meter events. His best performance was running the 1600-meter event with a time of 4:57. Levin said that the meet was very close and that the effort of each member of the team was essential to the success of the team and getting the win.


“The boys varsity meet against St. Francis was extremely close with  [the team] winning by only one point. That just goes to show how valuable everyone is to the team. One fewer point and we wouldn’t have won.”


Both the boys and girls teams look to continue their success on the road at their next meet against Chaminade High School on April 22.
