Boys' Indoor Track & Field
A history of excellence:
- 18 Olympians who have earned nine medals (seven of them gold), including legends Ted Meredith (1912), Bill Carr ’29, and Charlie Moore ’47.
- 16 alumni 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 on the collegiate level at a variety of schools, including Air Force, Army, Davidson, Emory, Navy, Nebraska, Penn, St. Joseph’s, Swarthmore, and Valparaiso.
Most 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.
Track & field athletes train and compete in the state-of-the-art Hale Field House, which hosts a number of home meets each season. The current schedule also features high-level competitions at other premier high school and college venues.
