Calling all new and returning track and field athletes! Preseason conditioning will resume when we return from winter break on Tuesday. All athletes are welcome.
We meet Monday through Thursday at 4pm at the DHS track.
In order to participate, athletes must be "cleared" through DHS Athletics. Please give your signed confirmation email to one of the coaches at practice.
All athletes and coaches will participate in weekly Covid testing. I suggest that you do this on your own time when it works with your schedule. Athletes who have not been tested by Thursday will do so before practice. If this is your plan, please arrive early for practice so that your testing does not cut into your training time.
Please wear a mask as you arrive at practice. We will wear masks during our announcements and whenever we gather together.
Our official high school season begins in February and runs through the end of May.
Signup information is coming soon.
For now, athletes should make sure they are cleared through DHS Athletics: Click Here. Don't put this off!
In order to minimize injury risk and perform as well as we can, athletes should prepare their bodies for the upcoming season.
For those not participating in winter DHS sports, we will offer preseason conditioning.
Conditioning will begin Monday, 11/29 and will end at the start of our regular season.
We will meet at the DHS Stadium, Monday through Thursday at 4pm. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we will use the weight room following our workout.
Athletes must be cleared through DHS Athletics in order to participate in these conditioning sessions.
What a great day for Blue Devil Track and Field! Davis comes away with victories in both divisions. Way to go!
The final dual meet of the season was outstanding.
So many PRs and season bests. The team support was amazing, particularly during the 4x4s.
Diego's 4:12 1600 is second all time at DHS and second in the Sac-Joaquin Section! Lily Gieschen's 37'2.5" triple jump is third in the Sac-Joaquin Section.
Congratulations to our group of distance runners who attended this year's DDF!

This was Diego’s 2nd Sombrero heat of the day as he was in the fastest heat for the 1600m earlier. Diego finished 11th and got a PR of 9:16.79. Zach Ayers ran the 3200m of his life and closed a giant gap to almost catch the winner of the race. Zach finished 3rd and earned an incredible PR of 9:08.40
Athletes of the Meet are Abby Carroll and Ryan Mitchell
Abby Carroll doubled up and PRed in both of her events. She got 3rd in the 1600m with a new PR of 5:39.22. If that wasn’t impressive enough she came back and took 2nd in her heat of the 3200m with a 30+ second PR Abby ran 12:08.17.
