Students in grades 9-12 may try out for distance-running, sprinting, and field events — 18 events total. Teams are selected based on best times for running and best distance for field events. We focus on the proper techniques of running, jumping, stepping hurdles, and throwing implements of shot and discus. 

Rather than focus on invitational meets, we work toward advancing in the state track meets. We run the district meet and must earn a top-four position to advance to regionals. If we earn top four in regionals, we go on to north state, and from there, the top four advance to the state meet. In 2021, we had 15 athletes compete at the state meet (5A). In 2021, at 6A, we had two compete at state.

Tryouts are in the spring. Practice is held daily after school, in season and weather permitting.
