The South Dade Senior High School Boys and Girls Track and Field teams are doing well going into the district meet.
Quincy Smith, who coaches the girls team, believes the program is going in the right direction. “I think we have a good chance of doing well in the district meet. We have athletes who may qualify for the regional meet. Track is an individual sport but our athletes want the team to do well. It takes a lot of focus to do well in this sport,” he said.
