Outdoor 2017 So Far -

The Cheltenham Girls Penn Relays athletes were recently selected to be recognized by Nike as one of five national stand-out teams at Penn Relays. Our 4x100m and 4x400 relays look to continue our competitive streak at Penn Relays. We also have two athletes in the elite individual events: Brianna Smith in the HJ and MaryGrace Rittler in the 3k. Currently, Chanel Brissett sits at US #1 in the 100m Hurdles and PA #1 in the 100m, Bria Barnes is PA #2 in the 400m, the 4x400m relay is PA #1, and the 4x100m relay is PA #2. Our team has continued our undefeated dual-meet streak to nine years (no losses in league competition) and hopes to win its 8th straight League Championship and 5th straight District 1 Championship

Community Give Back -

The CHS Girls Track Teams also look forward to continuing their annual traditions of giving back to the community with the Cheltenham All-Elementary Track Meet in June (7th Year) for district 2nd - 6th graders and the Miracle Mile to benefit the special olympics and our unified track program (8th year).
