"DEFEND THE TRADITION"

Track and Field at SLUH is an extension of our school community. Our team aims to embody its highest ideals and values. Track & Field at SLUH is about more than winning. It is a part of our spiritual life, a way to honor God, a part of the way in which we are striving to become better human beings. We recognize that it is a gift to be able to compete and share the experience of athletic competition and training with a team. We approach everything we do in a spirit of gratitude to God who gave us our gifts, to our parents and families, to our teammates, to our coaches, and to past athletes in the SLUH Track & Field program.
