Join us at 9:00am at Lee High School on Saturday, July 30, 2016 for our annual Prep Rally and Family Fun Day.
The chart above represents generally accepted prep-level track & field standards for common events. Each level represents the typical standard for an athlete to be competitive. Bronze represents the district level. Silver represents the regional level. Gold represents the state level. Platinum represents the national level. Each district, region and state are not the same competitively, therefore an athlete meeting a silver standard may not even make it out of districts if multiple athletes in the district are performing at the silver or gold level.
This past weekend Lee Athletics sponsored a trip to Florida State University and Florida A&M University for a Spring Preview. We're once again thankful for the opportunity to inspire and support our students on their pursuit of a college future.
