On track for perfect season

(Continued)

“We take it seriously when we’re at the meets,” said Stansel. “But we try to keep it light-hearted in practice.”

So as Tuesday approaches, the boys will get a bit more serious, and Healey says that he has learned a lot this winter.

“It’s pretty satisfying knowing that, when you really work hard, it does pay off,” said Healey. “And you kind of have to bring it back to the coaches (Foley, Don Hennigar, Mike McCormick). They do a really great job with this program, obviously.”

“It’s really been huge for me,” Stansel said of his indoor success. “Because I really looked up to my brother (John) who was really fast. I showed a huge amount of improvement last year, and it is great to be with the team. We’re going to keep getting better and going to keep winning. It’s really everything I ever wanted.”
