Track & Field

Jesuit track & field has captured the District title in every year but one since 2000. In 2016, the Tigers earned their seventh District title in seven seasons under coach Andy Wood '92, and their 16th in the past 17. The Tigers surged ahead in the 2nd-to-last event and held on to win, 139-134 over runner-up Hillsborough, while advancing 14 athletes to the Region Meet. Individual District champions were John Robbins '18 (mile and 2-mile) and Omar Dibba '18 (pole vault), and Travell Harris '17 set a new school record in the 100 meters (10.70, click here to watch Harris in action). Among many alumni who have gone on to participate in college track & field are Dante Newberg '15, who has established himself as one of the ACC's top decathletes at Florida State, and State Champion pole vaulter Nick Catchur '14 at the University of Miami. Wood was named the area’s Coach of the Year in 2014 by the Tampa Tribune. (Photo: Shane Eilers '17 competes in the 100 hurdles.)
