From the Sideline
“Pavlo Strembitskyy competed in three events in our first meet on Thursday, and he set personal records in two of them—the 100 meters and the Long Jump. In the pole vault he had a great beginning-season performance. In addition to being a versatile athlete who can score points in several events, Pavlo has a huge impact on the team through his attitude, work ethic, passion for the sport, and leadership. He is the epitome of what we hope Lindbergh track members will be. His idea of leadership is not only setting a good example and being vocal in leading warm-ups, etc., but he also is committed to serving the team. He gives people rides; he pays attention to the n w people to make sure they feel included; he functions as an assistant coach, helping to teach others the technique in his events.”
