Track and Field
We believe that all athletes can grow, develop, and improve over the course of a season, as well as, from season to season. Track and Field will benefit the student-athletes in their life-long endeavors by developing the character traits of discipline, preparation, cooperation, respect, leadership, sacrifice, and a strong work ethic. Even though winning is not everything, we must attain an attitude within our program to always strive to be the best both academically and athletically. Above all, we expect our athletes to demonstrate the understanding that they not only represent themselves, but their families, their community, and Mae Jemison High School. Our athletes’ willingness to demand excellence of themselves and their teammates will be the key to a successful season.
“It’s not the amount of talent you have that makes you successful; it is the ability to use all of the talent you have - it is the ability to reach your full potential.” – Tom Landry
