Smith Middle School Track is a great way to get involved in our school community outside of the classroom. It is a very unique sport in that it has 16 different events! All 7th and 8th graders are welcome to join. We field separate boys and girls teams. Lets do some running, meet new friends, and of course have some fun in the sun!

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! The county 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. Here is our introductory announcement :) 2021PreasonsTrackAnnouncement.mp4
