- March Madness can mean all sorts of things, the NCAA tournament, the end of the NBA regular season and the beginning of spring sports.
Much like many schools in the Northwoods, Prentice track and field athletes have started running the hallways to prepare for the season.
One sophomore even has her eye on the state podium.
But get this - she hasn't even had the chance to step foot on a track in her high school career.
As a sophomore, Serena Moore made the top thirty at the state cross country meet, just seven months after tearing her ACL.
"You have to realize when you get knocked down, anything is possible if you get back up," Moore said.
"People didn't think I was going to come back at all but I proved them wrong."
Now Serena will try and make her way back to the state level in three events, the two mile, four by eight relay and the 400-meter dash.
"It's going to be hard. I am going to be dead tired but it's what I have to do," Moore said.
Serena isn't the only buccaneer with her eye's on the prize. Junior sprinter Kaitlyn Erickson qualified for state in both the 100 and 200 last season.
But this year she's feeling the pressure to be even faster.
"It makes me kind of nervous but I am just excited to show everyone I can handle it and that I am as good if not better than I was last year," Erickson said.
Both runners believe their Prentice pride will push them to where they want to be.
"We don't put our heads down; we always fight hard. We aren't the biggest school in the world, but we are strong," Moore said.
Prentice will compete in its first meet Thursday at Northland Pines High School.
