SMS track consists of 7th and 8th grade girls and boys. The team competes in various track meets during the months of April. These meets may be separated by grade level or may be combined 7th and 8th grade meets. For most meets, all athletes will compete. We do have three meets that only the top 2 or 3 athletes in each event will compete. Practices begin in the beginning of March and the season ends the end of April.
The team practices at the Smithville Middle School track practice facility which is located just east (behind) the middle school. Practices begin immediately after school and last until 4:15. All home meets are held at the Smithville School District Stadium.
