Track and Field

 

The OLW Track and Field team is made up of 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls.  The season runs from the end of March to mid-May.  Practices are held 3-4 times a week in the vicinity of the school.  On occasion, we will travel to Harper College for practices.  There are 4 meets, including the Conference Meet.  The meets are usually held on Saturdays, at Carmel High School.  JV team members can compete in the softball throw, long jump, 50 meter dash, 200 meter dash, 800 meter run and relays.  Varsity team members can compete in shot put, long jump, 100 meter dash, 400 meter dash, 1 mile, and relays.  The Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Sectional Meet is open to Varsity team members who attempt to qualify for the State Meet.  The State Meet is held in Peoria the third weekend in May.

The team is coached by Tricia Stapleton.
