After a great season of participation and dedication, Unified Track ends. However, they are not going out without a bang! Last week, the team jumped into an exciting finish with their team pizza party to celebrate their last practice, a pasta party on Wednesday, and their biggest meet of the season: states!  

On Monday the twentieth, the team had an outdoor pizza party with bubbles, games and more to celebrate the final week of the season. The sunny day was a wonderful way to celebrate the team’s hard work. Additionally, on Wednesday the team prepared for their state competition with a pasta party. Unfortunately, the weather did not work in favor of the competition and the meet was rescheduled from Thursday the 23rd to the following Tuesday after Memorial Day Weekend. Sophomore team member Brooke Pryor says, “Although it was disappointing to have the meet rescheduled, it was great to look forward to this after the long weekend!” The poor weather did not stop the team from getting back at it a fe

w days later. 

On Tuesday, t

he 28th, Hingham Unified Track was bussed to Natick High School and was rewarded with a beautiful sunny day on a very nice campus! With around 50 towns and 680 students, the 2024 states competition commenced. Around 18 well-deserving students from the Hingham Team qualified to compete in the

 state competition and came prepared for an exciting day. All other students came in support to cheer on their team members. Unified set up camp on the side field along with many other teams under tents with snacks and drinks to refresh the students. The team competed in relays, long jump, 100-meter races, 400-meter races, javelin throwing, and many more. The warm day made running quite the workout, but the Unified athletes did not let it stop them from giving it their all! Hingham Unified Track athlete Paul Grady who competed in the 100-meter relay says that his favorite part of the entire day was the running.  

After a long day in the sun, the team came home tired but very content. Hingham finished 15th in an outstanding competition and was third in the relay competition. The team had a great season and an awesome finish with states. Congratulations athletes, and good luck next season!
