The Chelsea High girls track & field team is off to a great start this season.  The squad  size is large, the energy is high, and the determination is growing.  The team currently consists of 58 girls, 32 who are brand new to the team this year.

“Many of our key members graduated last year, but I am excited to have a lot of freshman and sophomore talent joining us this season.  I am hopeful that they will be helpful in contributing to the successes that our returning members have experienced the past few years,” says CHS girls head coach Kim Huffer.
