Girls track and field is the next spring sport. Tryouts will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 23 and will run through the 26th.

Runner Greta Dieck (‘19) said, “I am most looking forward to setting and achieving some personal goals for myself as well as to see our team performance grow overall this year. We typically struggle to get relay teams and individuals to qualify past districts, so I am hoping that more talented girls will be willing to put in the effort and time to go really far this year.”
