Season
TRACK REQUIRES A WEEKEND COMMITMENT TO RACE AS SEVERAL MEETS ARE HELD ON SATURDAYS!
We have dual meets from early April through the beginning of June against teams in the Catholic Conference League. We will also compete in weekend invitationals, Division 1 state relays and the Div. 1 state championship. Often (depending on results at previous meets) our season will extend to the All-State meet and New England championship.

Levels
Junior Varsity, Varsity

Overview
Spring Track and Field includes 17 events, including two relays at every meet: 
100m, 110m hurdles, 200m, 400m, 400m hurdles, 800m, 1 Mile, 2 Mile, Long Jump, High Jump, Triple Jump, Pole Vault, Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, 4 X 100 relay, 4 X 400 relay  

Tryouts
No tryouts / cuts.
Track is a "no-cut" sport based on athletic ability. However, consistent,  regular attendance at practices and meets is required to remain on the team. Athletes earn a "Varsity" letter by scoring ten points in dual meets or at the league championship, or after three years or consistent participation on the team.

Equipment
Specialty event shoes (e.g., running spikes for track, throwing shoes, high jump shoes) are suggested but not required
