2018 Track & Field Season

The Saint Thomas Academy Track & Field team welcomes accomplished and developing athletes from grades 6 to 12. Our goal is to help each student-athlete become the best they can be at their individual events and to give them the opportunity to contribute to team success.

Philosophy and Mission:

The philosophy and mission of the track & field program at Saint Thomas Academy is to encourage committed participation in a healthy, life-long sport while developing a highly competitive class AA team and preparing athletes to compete in college track & field if desired.  This is an education based athletic program.  The coaches strive to promote development of healthy lifestyles, strong character, integrity, work ethic, commitment, teamwork, and lifelong friendships while teaching athletes to train and compete wisely and to their full potential. 

Team Beliefs:

  • Committed participation leads to lifelong love for a healthy activity.
  • Every team member matters and is expected to contribute and improve.
  • Time, distance, place, awards don’t matter. Becoming the best person and athlete you can be does.
  • Training and competing should be fun!
