Track & Field

Running faster, throwing further, jumping higher and longer.

Since 1952 St. Patrick's College Track & Field has always been well represented and a sport that has proven to be not only popular and rewarding but also very successful. With strong involvement in the AIC competition, St. Patrick's College has earned the proud reputation for developing, fostering and nurturing Track & Field athletes who have also used these refined skills and talents to further their performance in other sports.
