Special Photo/Reggie Davis Alexander senior Vivette Green says she is looking forward to her final track and field season.

Before Vivette Green starts her final outdoor track and field season, she has a little unfinished business in Birmingham.

The Alexander senior will run in an indoor meet in Alabama on Saturday.

“Indoor has always been my favorite season,” Green said. “I really don’t know why but I just like running in the curves. I try to run real strong.”

Green is battling a cold but said she is looking forward running.

“It is just a way of getting the season started for outdoor,” Green said.

“Vivette will be fine,” Alexander track coach Brian Robinson said. “We are treating it more or less like a glorified practice.”

Green has already signed with Purdue and is looking forward to challenging for a state title in the 100 and 200-meters. She finished runner-up in the 100 at the Class AAAAAA meet.

Green finished third in 200.

“I’m using this season to run for fun,” Green said. “I still have some goals to reach but I don’t really feel that much pressure. I’ve already signed so I’m going out running.”

The Cougars should again feel a strong team that could challenge for the state title. Green’s top competitor in the 100 meters has graduated, which makes her a favorite.

“I want to be able to make a difference,” Green said. “I want to win state. I wants some championship rings.”

Robinson said Green did well early in the season but struggled some near the end. He said they are looking for her to peak a little later this season.

“She just have to stay focused and run,” Robinson said. “She has ran well during the indoor and beaten some really good girls. I feel we will have a solid team.”
