Outdoor Track and Field season runs from beginning of March through May. Our team of roughly 60 girls welcomes anyone who is willing to work hard and wants to improve regardless of their ability. This policy is a reason why our team has been so successful through developing new talent and encouraging constant personal growth.
We compete in the AACA Conference dual/tri meets, as well as very selective weekend invitationals. We were 2018 and 2019 AACA Conference Champions, and in 2019 we had 9 athletes qualify for District 1 AAA Championships in javelin, discus, long jump, 1600m, 3200m, and 4 x 800 relay. Two student athletes competed at the PIAA State Championships at Shippensburg in javelin and 3200m, finishing 9th and 14th respectively.
Looking to 2020, our goal is to continue to improve as a whole team. We are working toward another strong showing at the Conference Championships and to bring even more competitors to Districts and States.
