The runners line up at the starting line. They move around, trying to get their bodies ready for the upcoming race. Bang! The runners start to dash around the track. However, one runner stands ahead of them all. He steadily increases his lead and eventually finishes first. He crosses the finish line with a smile on his face. Derek Nugent ’17 is a upcoming track star. He runs 400 meter dash and 800 meter runs. He already has a few varsity points which is an incredible achievement for a freshman.
