Track Team

Run with Pride, Live with Honor” − S.F.A. Track Team

“Running has had a great impact on my life. It has taken me out of my comfort zone and made me do things I never thought I could accomplish.”- Sarah Tauriello

When you join the track team, you become part of a track family. It is more than just a team, it is a family where everyone cheers for each other. Coach, parents, and teammates are always there to support you with open arms. Each time we get together, we become closer. It is amazing to see how many friendships we have created.

Track has helped us to be fit, healthy, to improve our stamina, speed, and to feel good about ourselves. Each accomplishment, whether big or small, will make you feel proud. We as a team feel privileged to be part of the S.F.A Track Team.

Coach Hans Parrado makes this all happen. He is the coolest, nicest, dedicated, and very supportive coach you will ever meet. He is always there to give us a pat on the shoulder whenever we succeed and when we fall a bit short of our goals. Coach encourages and motivates us to become better. His time is precious, yet he gives up some of that time to coach us. Thank you Coach Hans for everything!
