Varsity Track & Field

Team Overview

Philosophy

The goals of the Trinity-Pawling track and field program are aligned with that of USA Track and Field (USATF): athletes first, winning second. In and out of season, the coaching staff works with the team to develop themselves as well-rounded athletes. Workouts are tailored to the skill level of each athlete, and each athlete is given individual performance goals throughout the season to improve their overall fitness. The team continually challenges each other to work beyond their potential and strive for excellence in every event.


League

Each season, the team competes in dual meets against Founders League opponents, the Penn Relays, the Founders League Championship meet, and the Division 1 New England Prep School Championship meet. Numerous Trinity-Pawling athletes have won individual and relay events at these meets.
