In 2024, legendary head coach Paul Hines retired and passed the torch to Salvatore Scarafone after 40 years of leadership, success, and service at SCH.

Coach Sal is a running sports athlete, USATF certified and registered coach, Pepperdine Executive MBA graduate, with almost a decade of track and cross-country coaching experience in the CYO, USATF, and AAU leagues. His club team won back-to-back indoor track championships in 2023 and 2024, and over the years he has coached numerous All-American athletes.

Coach Scarafone and the Athletics staff have assembled an all-star roster of assistant coaches:

Julian McFadden '06: Has coached at SCH in many capacities over the past eight years and brings a wealth of knowledge as a sprint and jump specialist.

James Vallery: Coached at Cheyney University for five years and joined SCH in 2016. Coach Val is a sprint and hurdles specialist.

Christy Tinneny: Has coached track & field in the CYO league for eight years and is currently working as a distance specialist.

Sean Burns: A former collegiate pole vaulter for Kutztown University, Coach Sean is taking our pole vaulters to the next level.

Darian Bryant '16: Throws Coach, SCH alumnus (2016) Football & Shot Put, former collegiate athlete for Temple University, Towson University, & Virginia Union.

Our track & field team has access to customized strength, conditioning, and fitness training provided in our new state-of-the-art weight room, as well as athletic trainers who partner with our coaches.

For most of our athletes, the outdoor track season is a continuation of the indoor track season. Distance runners build a base throughout the cross-country and indoor track seasons. In the spring, they focus on increasing their speed to run their best time at the championship meet. Sprinters, jumpers, hurdlers, and throwers fine-tune their skills in the spring to achieve their goals by mid-May.

In April, our team participates in several meets including the Penn Relays at the University of Pennsylvania’s iconic Franklin Field. The Inter-Ac Track Championship and PAISAA Championship meets are in May, and nationals are traditionally held in June.

SCH has a rich history of graduating track & field student-athletes who have competed for colleges such as the University of Arkansas, the University of Tennessee, Penn State University, Johns Hopkins University, Emory University, and Columbia University.
