George Lapinski gets ready to launch the shotput.

Four years in the making. The heart, sweat, and grind put in, day in and day out. To finally meet your goal and always strive for the best, makes you stronger. It gives you a spirit that no one else has, a fire that burns in your heart, which makes you push harder everyday.

Track is a sport that has been well overshadowed by other growing sports, but the ones who join, have a passion like no other. George Lapinski is a LTHS Winter track and Spring track thrower as well. With 9 accumulated medals, he’s been competing at the high-school level for four years and has only improved. Being apart of teams with Shaun Spina, Tommy Strychowski, Juan Osorno, and Jon Grant, Lapinski has been surrounded by an immense amount of talent that has helped him be successful and has given him the competition needed over the years.

How do you feel about the moment and this record? Humbled, grateful for the opportunity to be able to do what I love everyday and chase records.”

— George Lapinski

I was able to catch up with Lapinski and ask him a few questions. Who has been your biggest supporters over the years in track? “Coach Fisher and Coach Zwiren they pushed me when I needed it the most”. How have you prepared for the start of this season? Lapinski said that he did some serious offseason training, but there was a major drop off from last year to the beginning of this year, and once he started to get back into the flow of things he was consistently throwing well.
