David Conable is a junior here at Orcutt Academy and has been excelling in track and field, running the 400 meter and 200 meter races.

Conable has been running track and field since freshman year, and has performed incredible in his first two seasons. His current personal best in the 200 meter race is 24.4 seconds, achieved during his sophomore year, but he prefers the 400 meter race more. Conable’s fastest 400 time is 53.2 seconds, which is a whole 3 seconds faster than any other teammate on the our track and field team. His speed took him to the CIF Finals, in division 4 last year, one of the only on the team. Although he did not top his personal best or do as well as he wanted to last season in CIF’s, he claimed,

“I was in awe with the competition and spirit of the athletes.”

Head coach James Barr and sprinter coach Marc Tosches recognize David’s skill, and both hope to see him excel this season and advance to CIF again this year.

The 2018 track and field season kicked off on Wednesday, the 28th of February. Conable did great once again, running a 54.23 in the 400 meter, only a second off his personal record, which is a great time to start the season off with.

David Conable has high hopes for this year and hopes everyone at Orcutt Academy will be cheering him on as well.
