This past week, Turpin’s track and field teams competed in the early season “Coaches Classic” organized by the South West Ohio Track Cross Country Coaches Association to showcase the best talent in the area. Qualifying meets were held at four different locations on Wednesday, April 9, and the top four finishers in each event at each location met for the finals on Friday, April 11 at Winton Woods High School.
Track & Field
Turpin's track and field teams opened their seasons against conference foes Anderson and Kings on April 1 at Kings High School in a tri-meet for the boys and, with the addition of Mt. Notre Dame, a quad for the girls. While school was still in session for Kings and Mt. Notre Dame, the Forest Hills School District's spring break left the Turpin and Anderson varsity squads significantly depleted, giving a number of J.V. athletes an opportunity to step up for this first competition of the season.

After a month of technical difficulties, 450+ new photos have been installed in slideshows attached to the articles covering each of the last three Track and Field events: the ECC Championships at Anderson, the District meet at Mason, and the Regional meet in Dayton. Scroll down to the end of each article to see the photos for that event.
