Information about Peterson's track season: 

We usually have approximately 150 kids come out for track.  Although there are no cuts, and every student is allowed to practice and train with the team, we are only allowed to take so many kids to the track meets.  The top three (3) kids in each grade level / gender per event will be allowed to attend the meets.  Example, if your student is an 8th grade boy and wants to long jump, there are probably twenty (20) 8th grade boys trying out for three (3) positions.  Also each athlete may only compete in three (3) events total.  Thank you for your support.  We look forward to another great season in 2019!
