“I feel like I am better prepared than ever before,” said Kobelski, who has already been accepted to Holy Cross, where she was recruited to throw. “I have worked hard and lifted more. I did Bay State Games this summer. I would love to go all the way to Nationals. That would be great. I am slowly improving my personal best.”

But her ultimate goal is the school record of 43-¾ set in 1986. It is a goal that she is reminded of every day by the school’s all-time track leader board, which sits on the wall near the school’s main exit.

“I see that every time I walk in or leave the building,” she said. “It reminds me I have to keep working hard and setting my goals high. That was be amazing.”
