Cadet Indoor Track

Indoor Track keeps our runners going strong all year long. Starting in mid-November, the season runs through early March with Freshman and Varsity teams. Boys in grades 7 through 12 can join the teams, but 7th and 8th graders must pass a Selected Classifications test to compete as members of the freshman team because NYS doesn’t have a Modified Indoor Track Program. Practice is held Monday through Friday, with meets generally falling on Saturdays or Sundays.

Track events contested include the sprints (55m-400m), hurdles, middle distances (600m, 800m, 1000m), and distances (1600m, 3200m). Field events contested include the high jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault, shot put and weight throw.

La Salle belongs to the Tri-County Indoor Track League and competes locally at Hudson Valley Community College, Union College, RPI, Williams College and the University at Albany. The team also travels to invitationals in NYC at the Armory Track & Field Center on 168th St. in Manhattan, Providence, Dartmouth College and Yale University.

Head Coach John Leonard has coached La Salle Indoor Track for more than 30 years, during which the team has won nine Big 10 league titles and finished in 2nd place another four times. Numerous La Salle athletes have qualified for the NYS Indoor Track Championship held every March at Cornell University.
