SCH’s boys’ indoor track program enables athletes to develop strength as well as sprinting, hurdling, throwing, and jumping skills that will enable them to reach their potential by the end of the spring track season. This is accomplished through drills that connect to the athletes’ particular events and through specific running workouts. There is no league championship in indoor track. The team does participate in the Greater Philadelphia Coaches Association meets, the Pennsylvania State Championships (includes all public and private state schools), and the New Balance Nationals.
Over the last dozen years, six team members have earned All-State honors and four have been named All-American.
For indoor nationals, the team has qualified in the following events: 60 meters, 60 high hurdles, 200 meters, 400 meters, 1 mile, 2 mile, 5,000 meters, shot put, long jump, triple jump, high jump, shuttle hurdle relay, 4x200 meter relay, and the distance medley relay.
