Girls' Outdoor Track & Field
A history of excellence:
- 18 Olympians who have earned nine medals (seven of them gold).
- 16 members enshrined in the Olympic, United States, and Pennsylvania Track and Field Halls of Fame.
- Penn Relays: 11 Championships of America, seven records, three teams inducted in the Wall of Fame.
Over the last several years, Mercersburg athletes have gone on to compete in collegiate track & field at a variety of schools, including Air Force, Army, Davidson, Emory, Navy, Nebraska, Penn, St. Joseph’s, Swarthmore, and Valparaiso.
Much of the coaching staff overlaps from one season to the next; assistants include former Division I athletes and veteran coaches in almost every track & field event.
The schedule features high-level competitions at premier high school and college venues, as well as the Penn Relays.
Track & field athletes train and compete on the Jimmy Curran Track, an all-weather, Regupol rubberized six-lane track named for legendary coach Jimmy Curran. Three jumping areas, a pole vault pit, and infield areas for discus, shot, and javelin complete the facility. The Hale Field House (adjacent to the Curran Track) provides year-round practice space and hosts meets during the indoor season.
