Track & Field is a multi-event sport held during the Spring. The season begins in January and ends in May. Practice begins formally immediately after the Christmas Holidays.

There are three divisions: Jr. High (Grades 8th and 9th), Junior Varsity (Grades 9th, 10th, and 11th), and Varsity (Grades 9th – 12th). Meets are usually conducted on Saturday mornings with a typical season being about 6 to 10 meets, some here in town, others in other parts of the state. Each division competes against other teams on their own grade level. Students are allowed to tryout for and participate in 17 different events. The different events that the students can participate in are:

Field
  • Shot Put
  • Discus
  • Javelin
  • Long Jump
  • Triple Jump
  • High Jump
  • Pole Vault
