Track and Field

In the fall, WSBVI students compete in track and field.  Students with higher amounts of functional vision compete in events that are standard to most high school track meets.  Students with lower vision participate in the same types of events, but with some modifications.  In running events for example, athletes run along wires to ensure they are able to stay in their own lane.  They also participate in “standing” jumps rather than running jumps.  This allows the students to display their talents on an equal playing field
