Help us send young student-athletes to the Penn Relays on April 22 - 26, 2015

The Penn Relays is the oldest and largest track & field competition in the United States. The first Penn Relays track & field competition was held on April 21, 1895. Franklin High School in Elk Grove will be sending some of our outstanding talent to the 120th year of this grand track & field event.

We would like to send our girls 4 x 100 meter relay team which has won the Sac Joaquin Section Masters competition over the past two years. We would also like to send our girls 4 x 400 relay team, boys 4 x 100 relay team and two other outstanding athletes who have bright futures ahead of them.

Some of these athletes have future dreams of becoming a future member of the United States Olympic Team. Going to the Penn Relays provides them a great start on their quest to achieve this fantastic goal.

We will need the our community’s help in raising money needed to send these deserving athletes to this event. Your donation is tax deductible.

Please make your donation today to make this great event a reality for our track team.

Macres Invitational Highlights

Great performances by many of student-athletes who did well not only on the track but inside the classroom.

Learning to Plan

Living life like a ship with no sails or navigation is a dangerous way to live. Student-athletes on Franklin High School's Track Team are taught how to set personal goals both athletically and academically. Athletes develop a work ethic towards reaching goals with small achievements daily to obtain both long-term and short term goals.

  • Breaking the destination into small steps
  • Implementing a daily plan of action
  • How to avoid distractions
  • Tracking progress of goals
