Track and Field

Become part of the lambkin flock

Track & Field is the most successful athletic program at Fort Collins High School.  The program won its first Conference title in 1912.  Since that time our track teams have won 53 Conference Titles, 24 State Championships, and 3 National Championships!  In fact, Fort Collins won the last national title ever contested and the trophy was retired right here in the “Home of the Champions!”

We cordially invite any student-athlete interested in joining our track and field program.  We are a no-cut sport that offers an opportunity for any person to better him or herself as an athlete and promote a better lifestyle of health and fitness.  Athletes work with a supportive coaching staff where they are encouraged to compete at their fullest potential.  When you join the Lambkin track and field family, you will be surrounded by the nicest and most supportive high school teammates in the city of Fort Collins.

Events

Choose an event right for you

Sprints are highly explosive running events that are short in length.  Events are competed with individual and team efforts in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m medley relay, 4x100m relay, 4x200m relay, and 4x400m relay.

Middle distance events require maintaining fast speeds over longer distances.  These events include the 800m, 1600m, and 4x800m relay.

The one distance event that transitions from cross country to the track is the 3200m race.  It challenges athletes to run endurance over a long distance as quickly as possible.

The jumping events include two horizontal jumps, the long jump and triple jump, and one vertical jump, the high jump. Each event has the athlete leap at high speeds in order go farther or higher against their opponent.

The throwing events consist of the discus and shot put, which are two heavy articles that must be skillfully thrown by an athlete in an attempt to out-throw his or her competitors.  It takes great technique and concentration to win.

There are two hurdles races where an athlete must hurdle tall or short barriers set in their running path.  These races are technically challenging and are the girls 100m high-hurdles, boys 110m high-hurdles, and the 300m intermediate-hurdles.

An athlete in the pole vault uses a flexible pole as an aid to jump over a bar at impressive heights.  It is one of the most technical events and takes a lot of courage and upper body strength.
