Track & Field
2018-2019 VIKING TRACK AND FIELD
Viking Track is open to all Parkland students. Depending on the meet they can compete as 6th grade girls, 6th grade boys, 7th grade girls, 7th grade boys, 8th grade girls, and 8th grade boys. The main goal of the program is to work hard to improve weekly and have a great time. In the last few years, our track teams have consisted of around 150-185 Parkland students.
Team members have the opportunity to select events they wish to compete in. We compete against the other 11 schools in the FVC. The 7th and 8th grade teams also compete at IESA Sectional and State meets. Based on time or previous scores, 6th grade team members are allowed to also compete at IESA competitions. Track practice will begin in March. Team members are expected to be at practice everyday. The 2018-2019 head coaches are Mr. Taylor, Mrs. Virgil-Maurer, and Mrs. Carvell.
