On Saturday February 17, 2018, the Christ School Indoor Track squad competed at the University of Kentucky Invitational in Lexington, KY.
This weekend, members of the Christ School Track and Field team will head to the prestigious North Carolina – Virginia Indoor Showcase to compete against some of the region's best runners and field athletes.
Last track season, Kevin Snyder '19 was named the Asheville Citizen Times All-WNC Track Athlete of the Year. Snyder, now a junior, won the 3A NCISAA State Long Jump as a freshman and sophomore, including setting a school record in last year's state meet.
After a successful Cross Country season in which he bested every WNC runner he faced, Andrew Hammel '20 has been named Western North Carolina Runner of the Year.
The Nantahala Outdoor Center bills itself as the nation's largest outdoor recreation company, and upper management includes a Christ School graduate.
