Varsity Coed Indoor Track & Field

Citius, altius, fortius -- faster, higher, stronger. Track and field is not about what kind of athlete you currently are, but rather about becoming the best athlete you can be. GA’s track and field program is centered on growth, so each athlete can find success as he or she trains and competes with others in order to run faster, jump farther, and throw stronger. And the best part about the Winter Track season is that we get to train through the toughest elements all winter long!

    I Love GA because…
    "of the community."

    When you visit my classroom/office/work space, you will see…
    "students engaging in mathematics concepts by asking questions and volunteering responses. You may even observe students playing my popular review game "Minefield."

    My hobbies and interests include…
    "track and field, the Philadelphia 76ers, board and card games, and my dog."

    Engaging with students is important because…
    "it makes teaching and learning fun. When students and I are engaging with the material together, the classroom becomes an exciting learning atmosphere."

  • Peter Jennings
    Assistant Coach - Distance, Mid-Distance
    Pete Jennings '99 took over as head coach of the boys' cross country team in 2007. In 2010, Jennings guided the Patriots to an undefeated season and a Inter-Ac League Championship. That same year, GA finished second at States (Pennsylvania Independent School Athletic Association meet) and Jennings was named the PAISAA Cross Country Coach of the Year. In 2017, the team went 3-4, but consistently registered season-best times. Jennings helped coach Matthew Sandifer '20 to a First Team All-Inter-Ac selection. Jennings graduated from GA in 1999 and was captain of his cross country and track teams. He ran Division I cross country and track at the University of Richmond where he was selected to two Atlantic-10 All-Conference teams, and was named team captain and team MVP. He has also been GA's head boys' track and field coach since 2005.
