DGS junior Justin Esposito talks about his first year of being a DGS track team member and some of the experiences he has had from being on the team.  From records to people of inspiration, Esposito shares his memories of being a Mustang sprinter.

Q: Who was the first person you trusted on the DGS track team?

A:  The first person I trusted on the track team was Tom Macas, because he was so chill and he was the person I connected with.  He was always my relay partner.

Q: Who was the first coach to inspire you?

A: Coach [Dustin] Hausherr because he knew I had something in me and so he started pushing me.  He made sure I didn’t stop, even when I wanted to and he just kept telling me that I could do it.

Q: What was your last thought before you raced the 4x200m and broke the school record?

A: I was thinking if I could actually do this because right before, I sprained my ankle for the 4x200m and we were at the Mustang Relays [Meet] and I was wondering if I could do this with my ankle taped up.

Q: What was your first thought when you finished the 4x200m race and broke the school record?

A: I was the second person to run for the 4x200m, so I was really hoping that we got [the school record].  I felt like me and Jayden [Lambert] ran really well and we had clean handoffs and I was hoping we actually broke it.

Q: When was the last time you did something for the first time?

A: Going to Sectionals last year was the first time I have ever gone to anything beyond conference, which was the first time I ever went to conference, because I never actually played [a sport] during South.
