After an outstanding season of indoor track and field resulting in major success at states, ten of Green Hope’s star athletes traveled to the Nike Nationals meet in New York from Thursday, Mar. 7 to Sunday, Mar. 10.

The indoor track & field events consisted of many activities including throwing, jumping and running events as well as hurdles, relays, shot put and pole vault. Event highlights included Jenna Costa (‘25) setting the school record for the women’s 60m hurdles, Corinne Isaacs (‘27) earning a new PR in the 60m dash, Ivana Gomez (‘25) in the triple jump, Ellie Beck (‘27) in the 400m setting a school freshman record, Cameron Gregg (‘24) in the 60m hurdles, Dax Mahone (‘24) in the 800m and mile, Sebastian Percival-Shim (‘24) in the 800m, Gabe Cardenas (‘26) in the 800m and Seamus O’Driscoll (‘25) in the 800m.

There were three relays including the men’s 4x800m consisting of O’Driscoll, Cardenas, Mahone and Percival-Shim finishing eighth, the women’s 4x400m consisting of Beck, Gomez, Hanna Lee (’24) and Isaacs finishing ninth and the women’s 4x200m relay consisting of Emeili Tarpy (’24), Beck, Lee and Gomez.

Gomez was one of the female athletes participating in nationals, racing in the 4x200m, 4x400m and triple jump. The 4x400m relay team earned a PR, while Gomez had two PR splits in both the 4x200m and the 4x400m. She expresses the best parts of the meet, “Being with the whole team and having support from all my teammates was my favorite part of nationals. I also loved that it was in New York and I got to see the city.”

Qualifier O’Driscoll explained his experience running the 4x800m. “We didn’t run as well as we did at states– we didn’t get out fast and we were handing off and running crowded. We were two minutes off of All Americans so I think we are all kind of disappointed.” Regardless of this, he enjoyed seeing the city and watching all of the records be broken by athletes all over the country.

As the meet concluded on Mar. 10, Green Hope finished with many personal records as well as some school records. Those who qualified for Nationals had a great experience and enjoyed the Nike track in New York City even with the option of going to the New Balance track in Boston. With a successful nationals meet, athletes are officially concluding their 2023-24 indoor track & field season.

Mason Cline, Staff Writer
Mason is currently a junior at Green Hope High School and this is his first year on staff. He plays for the school’s varsity football team and hopes to study business at either NC State or UNC Wilmington. He spends his free time eating “good food”, especially sushi. As the youngest in a big family, Mason claims it was hard for him to figure out what he wanted to do. However, with a few English classes and a new found love for writing, joining the GH Falcon became an interest he could call his own. Nine times out of ten, if you ask Mason what he’s listening to, it’ll probably be a Travis Scott song.
