Every afternoon in the Spring, close to a hundred Deerfield boys and girls gather on the Moreau C. Hunt Track and Field complex to run, jump, and throw together, a collection of individual athletes whose contributions annually make Deerfield’s Track and Field program one of New England’s finest. The 2012 Boys’ New England Division I Champions, Deerfield Track and Field benefits from a top-notch coaching staff and a state-of-the-art, college-level facility. Our coaches include an Atlantic Coast Conference steeplechase champion, an Ivy League shot put champion, past NESCAC champions — long time veterans mixed with recent college graduates that balance cutting-edge coaching science with decades of sound experience. Our facility is an eight-lane 10mm full pour track surface with two horizontal jumping pits, dedicated pole vault and high jump areas, two shot put rings, a discus cage, and a javelin vector with a synthetic approach.
Graduates of Deerfield Track and Field can currently be found on the T&F rosters of Stanford University, Princeton University, Cornell University, the University of Michigan, Colby College, and Bucknell University. We pride ourselves on our team unity and sportsmanship, striving first and foremost to instill a love of the sport and a sense of team accomplishment through personal commitment and hard work.
