Track & Field
Panther Track and Field is a Spring sport which is open to all students in Grades Kindergarten through 8th. Our students train for all competition distances found at the middle school level. These include sprints (like the 100m and 200m), middle distances (such as the 400m and 800) and long distance (1600m). We also train for the long jump, shot-put, turbo javelin, and relays.
We are fortunate to have our own long jump pit on our school grounds and a running path by the tennis courts that we use during practices which are held weekly starting in late March.
We usually compete in at least 4 invitational meets against anywhere from 15 to 20 Catholic elementary schools. The competitions are held on weekends in April and May.
Our athletes in Grades Kindergarten to Grade 2 compete in short distance sprints to give them some experience in a moderately competitive atmosphere. Grades 3 to 8 compete by grade and gender for the top 3 medals in each event.
The team is managed and coached by Mr. Gargiulo and Mrs. Raleigh. For schedules, directions and team info, click here.
