Track and Field
TAPPS classifies Track & Field as a “lifetime sport”. There are many life lessons an athlete can experience in just one season of participation. We as a team rely on individual performances along with relay events to accumulate our team standing on the district, regional and state levels. The overall goal is to improve speed and power, heart and lung capacity, running mechanics, and to devise a competitive strategy that will help our athletes be successful, no matter the event.
All of these skills are specific to the sport of Track & Field, but can be applied in every other sports as they are paramount in athletic development. Our objective is for our athletes to consistently compete at state level competition. First, we must train and develop our program to be competitive as a team at the district, and regional levels. While winning is not everything, we must attain an attitude within our program to always strive to be the best both academically and athletically.
The 2021 season was one of great success for the Track and Field program at SCS. Our Varsity Boys pulled off a 2nd place finish at the District meet, in a very competitive varsity division. Varsity girls finished 1st Place in District for the first time in school history. Our Regional meet was another huge success. The girls finished 2nd Place (Runner Up) to Grace Community, while the boys finished 6th overall. Congratulations to our girls who also finished 2nd Place (Runner Up) at the State Championship meet!! We had a number of strong performances from our boys and girls, and a host of state medalists including a State Champion Triple Jumper, 2nd Place finish in the Long Jump, a State Champion 3200M Runner, Second place finisher in the 3200M’s, and a 3rd Place finish from our Girls 4X4 relay team. In our final 3 weeks of competition, this group broke 14 school records!!!
However, track and field is not always about the numbers... or the medals... or the major accomplishments. It’s about consistent and steady growth. It’s about conquering fatigue and time each and every day. We had a number of athletes who showed up daily with an attitude to learn, grow and improve, who developed in every facet of the sport. Athletes who are taking those life lessons into every area of their lives!
