Outdoor Track is underway

The Outdoor Track team is underway with a committed group of 54 runners, including 9 girls. We have strong performers at every distance--sprint, middle, and long--as well as long jump and for the first time this year, pole vault. We are looking forward to even more City Championship qualifiers as all three of last year's are returning and we have even more developing talent coming behind them. It's going to be a great spring!

Inaugural Indoor Track season a success!

The Flying Dragons ran a club team during the Indoor Track season this year. We hope to compete in the PSAL next year, but this year completed successfully in two invitational meets. Practices and meets were held at the amazing New Balance Track & Field Center just a mile from school at the Armory at West 168th Street.

You can find almost 300 photos of our Indoor meets and practices at Fans of the Flying Dragons on Facebook

We're at the Mayor's Cup today, including the boys Championship race

The Dragons will be at the big Mayor's Cup race today, with our varsity getting its first chance to run in the Championship race with 18 of the city's best teams. It's the one chance that we get to run against schools from Catholic and independent schools. The varsity race distance is 2.5 miles, and for freshmen it 1.5 miles. Here's Prasid Gupta in last year's varsity race.

First races this coming week

The boys and girls teams will be facing their first test this coming Monday in the borough-wide Grand Prix #1.  Completing against some of the best teams in the city--Stuyvesant, Laguardia, Hunter, and Beacon--we will get a good sense of where we stand and how much work we have to do. The team is well prepared physically and is mentally focused for Monday's contest.  The citywide Group Run (and Family Picnic) will be a few days later on Saturday, September 26. Here's a first group photo of the team and a link to our updated, and final, team calendar.
