Welcome to WYSI Track and Field.  For 2020 we are building on the success of the program in recent years.      Once again, we have numerous opportunities for our athletes to compete in local track and field meets.   In addition, we have the privilege of calling one of the state’s newest and best equipped track and field facilities our home!
