Running and lifting into the spring season

Track and Field – Track is a sport that requires endurance and strength to even just participate. For the first 30 minutes of conditioning days, it can range anywhere from three miles to a quick 100 yard dash. Track then moves into weight training to target the muscles needed when running.

“Conditioning definitely benefited me last year,” Jamison Diamond, ’25 said. “It helps a lot with the specific muscles we use when we are running.”












Softball – Every Tuesday and Thursday, South’s Girls Softball teams are in the Boll Gym preparing for the season ahead. When it comes to conditionings for softball, Addie Waller ’24 said that it is the best way of getting to know your team before the season starts.

“While it is important to be in good shape, you have to be able to connect with your teammates before you go out on the field with them,” Waller said. “Conditioning does that for us.”






Lacrosse – Starting mid-October, the Boys Lacrosse teams works out every weekday, but real conditioning starts two weeks before tryouts. Davis Linnell ’25 said that most of the lacrosse workouts are focused on intense output but over a short period of time.
“The conditionings definitely helps you play better,” Linnell said. “When you’re tired, you can make stupid decisions and it just helps you match up with your competition physically and mentally.”
