Track & Field - Girls' Middle School
The Middle School Track and Field Team consists of three groups and eleven events. There is the Distance Group (800M and 1600M run), the Sprinting Group (55M Hurdles, 100M Dash, 200M Dash, 400M Dash, and the 4x100M Relay), and the Field Event Group (Discus, Shot Put, Long Jump, and the High Jump).
Students will choose, with the guidance of the coaches, an event that fits them. The squad meets Tuesday thru Friday from 2:20 to 4:25 PM. After practice, students who are not immediately picked up by parents, should go to the locker room and then to the Middle School Entrance to be picked up. If they are not picked up by 4:40 PM, they will be escorted to Encore.
There are seven meets on the 2020 Schedule. All are away meets.

*** The away meets quite long and the travel is always far. The squad usually returns to the campus quite late, usually after 6:30 PM. Those students returning on the buses should be picked up by parents when they return.
