Track

Welcome to 7th/8th Grade Track!
Smith Middle School track is a great way to get involved in our school community outside of the classroom. Lets do some running, meet new friends, and of course have some fun!! See attached schedule for information on dates and times. 

 

 

                  SMITH KNIGHTS TRACK 

 

 

Welcome to the 2019 SMITH KNIGHTS TRACK season! We are looking forward to another successful spring!

 

Track is a sport that has something for everyone with its 16 different events! All 7th and 8th grade boys/girls are welcome to join. Come and have some 'fun in the sun' with your friends as you get physically fit.

 

Smith Knights Track competes against the Rochester, West Bloomfield and Troy middle schools. We also have a 'City Meet' where our 'City Champions' are crowned. Our season concludes by participating in the most prestigious and largest middle school track meet in the nation - The Oakland County Track and Field Championship! This meet has 40 middle schools send their best male and female student/athletes to compete to be 'County Champions'. This event draws over 1000 student/athletes and nearly 4,000 spectators! This is quite the event! 

 

Please note that if you are doing another spring activity we are flexible and can create a 'personalized' schedule for those individuals so they may still participate on the Knights Track Team.

 

 

Remember - "ALWAYS YOUR BEST" - This means wherever you are and whatever you are doing...Classroom, athletic courts/fields, friendships! 
 
GO KNIGHTS! DEFEND THE 'K'ASTLE!
