Outdoor track is awesome. The sun comes out, it warms up, we work outside every day. It’s a truly great sport. This page is under construction, so check back soon for more info for sprinters, jumpers, throwers, hurdlers.

Haverford is a member of the Central Athletic League. We run Central League meets during the week, usually (but not always) on Wednesdays.  One of our goals as a program is to win the league championship. The order of events at league meets looks like this:

300mh
4×800
100
1600
4×100
400
100mh (110mh boys)
800
200
3200
4×400
Field:
Pole Vault followed by High Jump
Long Jump followed by Triple Jump
Shot, Discus, Javelin
League meet scoring in the individual events: 1rst place = 5 points, 2nd place = 3 points, 3rd place = 1 point. On relays the first place team receives 5 points and no other teams are awarded points.

In addition to our league meets, we run invitational meets on most weekends, and we host our own Haverford Invitational on Saturday, April 7. In spring track there are qualifying standards for the PIAA District One (AAA) meet in Coatesville, then there are PA state qualifying standards for the PIAA State Championships (AAA) in Shippensburg. Another goal of the program is to qualify as many athletes as possible for the district and state meets. Qualifying standards are below. (FAT = Fully Automatic Time)
