Track & Field

Track & Field season is here once again and school practices will begin soon. Please see the table below for details about practices for each event.  For those boys who would like to compete in more than one event, speak to the coaches of those events to decide which practices you will be attending.  Ideally, boys will attend at least one practice per week for each of the events.  Attendance at practice may be considered when coaches are selecting teams for some of the meets.
