Track & Field Team

** 2021 Bay League Champions **
ABOUT OUR TEAM
Both boys and girls track and field athletes traditionally compete during the spring season in the Bay League, as well as the CIF-SS Division 2. Boys and girls train together, but compete separately at the same meet. As with other spring sports, our season caps off the school year with a feeling of success for the Peninsula Panthers. We have had many successful athletes who have pursued collegiate careers in track and field, but most athletes finalize their athletic competition during high school.
 
There are typically 16 events performed at any given track meet, allowing many types of athletes an opportunity to compete. Our philosophy is that if you are willing to train hard and are determined to be a be a good teammate, there is a place for you on our team. “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” - Tim Notke (HS Basketball Coach). While athletes compete in various individual events, on the Peninsula Track and Field Team teamwork and camaraderie are natural staples.

We have two levels of track and field: Frosh/Soph and Varsity. We train throughout the school year, but tryouts are usually a month before the first competition. Athletes from Fall and Winter seasons are always welcome to tryout when their sport has completed. Tryout announcements will be posted on this web page.
 
TEAM PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS
This Track Requirement document is for student athletes who are currently in PE Track with Coach Esparza. Athletes who eventually tryout for the track and field team will be required to sign this form to tryout in January.
