Track - Girls' Varsity


Overview

Overview

There is a long and rich tradition of track and field at Taft. Throughout its lengthy history, the belief that one can accomplish more individually within a close team atmosphere has always been at the track program’s core. The team roster typically numbers 35 – 40 girls who compete in 17 different running, jumping, and throwing events against the top prep school track teams in New England. The coaching staff brings decades of experience to their work with the teams and, as such, the program is able to accommodate a wide variety of athletes — from the beginner having no experience to the cross-over athlete from soccer, football, basketball, and ice hockey to the aspiring college track athlete. Each season, individual as well as team goals are made. A genuine sense of hard work, personal accomplishment and dedication to others are always central to these.

Since 1999, the girls team has trained and competed together on the Weaver Track, a state-of-the-art all-weather track and field facility. Formal workouts begin the last week of February, and training emphasizes team balance and the individual development of each team member. A full team schedule consisting mostly of dual and tri-meets begins the second week of April and lasts through the third week of May. Competition at the Founders League Championship meet, the Founders League Junior Varsity Invitational and the Division I New England Prep School Championship meet are the culminating events that mark the end of each track season.
