Welcome to Panther Track & Field. The Track & Field Team is the largest team and the largest co-ed team at Seattle Prep. We enjoy a family atmosphere led by a team of dedicated coaches.
There are no tryouts or cuts in track and field and no experience is needed. Generally more than half of our team had never participated before joining. Our coaching staff seeks to help each individual find events in which he or she can be most successful. Track also offers an outstanding opportunity for newcomers to earn a varsity letter.
