As a scholar athlete, Rimatzki said it was important to maintain a balanced schedule during the sports season. He played both basketball and soccer, and explained that practices would take up a lot of time after school. “Some game days,” he added, “I would not be home until eight or nine at night.

“I spent hours in the gym getting up shots each week, and each year before soccer season I made sure to get on the track to be in soccer shape.”

Tennis Coach Reflects on Loss of Season

Track Coach Reflects on “Lost Season”

Editor’s Note: A Livingston High School track coach submitted this reflection on the “lost season” of 2020, and the effect it has on students and coaches alike.

Spring track and field – the exhilaration as you cross the finish line; letting that javelin fly and watching its airborne path; landing in the sand after a nice jump; clearing the bar at your goal height. These things were not to be for the 2020 campaign. So many lost memories: practices, team meetings, competitions, team dinners, personal bests, the camaraderie and more. This has become the reality for athletes. I feel deeply for each and every one of them, from all over the country. It’s a devastating loss.
