“When you’re training for something,
you want to peak at the right time,” Gould
said. “My program is designed to peak at
the end of the season.”
e end of the season, of course, is the
Section 1 meet, held at the notoriously
hilly Bowdoin Park, in Wappingers Falls.
With that in mind, his team spends a lot
of time training on hills.
“You can’t handle it unless you’ve done
it,” Gould said.
e rst meet of the year will be the Big
Red Invitational, held Saturday, Sept. 7, at
Somers High School.
