Track and Field
This year’s track team has a strong roster of about forty athletes from all. It has been quite busy on its feet, competing in five meets over the span of eight days. The team has run multiple meets around the Bay Area and even had the opportunity to run one in Southern California.
On March 16, a select group of runners ran at the Marie Smith Malibu Invitational held at Malibu HS.
