By Brad Rushing, 05/16/22, 11:43AM CDT


The 2022 Track & Field season has come to a close, but what a remarkable season it was for the Stratford girls and boys programs. Several meet championship trophies were won, both teams were District and Area champions, 12 school records were broken, 8 Spartan athletes qualified for the state meet, and a State Champion was crowned. 

On Saturday in Austin, our athletes battled with an incredible amount of heart and determination after working so hard to earn their right to compete at the state meet. The best of the best in class 6A were there, and Spartan pride was on full display.
