Varsity Track & Field
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.
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.
- Broenniman Track: Built in 2004. This 400-meter all-weather, 6-lane track ranks at the top among the School’s New England competitors.
- Smith Field House: Opened in 2017
- Schreiber Weight Room: Renovated in 2014
- Pride Locker Room: Renovated in 2013
