Eddie, The Freshman Year

The Interaction of the Characters

Entering high school as freshmen, Eddie and Mark are extensively working out to secure a place on the high school track team. During tryouts, Eddie and Mark come face to face with the high school’s star sprinter, Paul Mahoney. Axel Braden, running a sub 60-second 440-yard dash, Eric Johnson, who runs any race from the 100-yard dash to the mile, Gary Mitchell, the school’s distance star, and Robert Bradshaw, the shot-put star, all hope to make the high school track team. But, do they all have what it takes?

The track and field season opens, and the high school’s track team is the strongest it has ever been. The team is not only extremely competent on the track, but equally competent at psychological warfare. On the track, the team functions as a well-oiled precision machine. Off the track, some of the interactions between the team members are not quite as refined. Drama ensues during the entire season, on the track and off, causing heated contention between some of the athletes.
