Track & Field

The 2018 Track & Field season is upon us and school practices will begin the week of March 12th.  Please see the table below for details about practices for each event.  If you 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, you will attend at least one practice per week for each of the events you would like to compete in.  Attendance at practice may be considered when coaches are selecting teams for some of the meets.
