The Standard: Pole Vault School Record at MVP Vibe Fest


By Danny Hughes ´23

Congratulations are in order for senior Joey Heilmann after he broke the pole vault school record. Joey, with a pole vault height of 13 foot 11 and ¼ inches, broke the previous school record set eight years earlier back in 2015 by Chris Grosskopf by almost a foot.

Joey originally joined the track team to do the long jump, but after an injury two weeks before the end of his sophomore season, he was put into the pole vault at sectionals. After only two weeks of practice, Joey got over 10 feet 6 inches. This was two and a […]

The Standard: ICOPS Invitational


By Charlie Walsh ‘23

“It’s my favorite indoor track meet all year,” said sophomore Gavin O’Connor.

On Sunday, the entire track and field team traveled to Lewis University to compete at ICOPS invitational. It is the first real meet of the year with good competition from all catholic schools. You have the chance to prove to yourself, teammates and coaches that you can be relied upon for future meets like Catholic League or sectionals.

It was a good outing; we finished 5th out of 22 schools, but that’s not where we want to be.  It is still really early in the season so we […]

The Standard: 5th Annual Crusader Duel Track Meet


By Sean Maloney ‘22

On Friday, the track and field team was split in half for the 5th Annual Crusader Duel. Captains Julius Lujano and Jack Antonson of Team J squared off against captains Sean Maloney and Sean McNally of Team SM.

On Wednesday, the captains split and drafted their teams. A lot of trash talk occurred in the week leading up to the meet.

“We’re by far the more athletic team. The result won’t end up being close,” said Rory Cusack ‘23.

Members of Team J felt a little different. Boasting the top athletes in the shot, pole vault, and hurdles, Team J thought […]

The Standard: Throwers Only Track Meet


By Sean Maloney ’22

On Saturday morning, the shot put throwers from the track and field team made their way up to Eisenhower and competed in a throwers only meet.

Blessed with warm weather, the meet was moved from the indoor track to the outdoor track.

“It was a great environment with beautiful weather,” said junior Troy Bever. “I’m really looking forward to the outdoor season.”

This was the first time the Crusaders threw outside. Lately, they’ve been throwing at indoor meets. Maybe the change of scenery was the boost they needed.

Freshman Charlie Mendez recorded his personal best in his young throwing career. Mendez won […]

The Standard: Time to Run Ugly


By Julius Lujano ‘22

The Brother Rice track season has started, and it is time for some great performances. The track and field team has many returning members and added more to the great roster.

Despite this deep roster, the missing presence of the large group of seniors who graduated will be felt throughout the team. Many people will have to step up and take the lead to ensure an eventful   season. 

The current team is lacking a large senior group with most of the athletes being underclassmen.  This is not a problem because the […]
