4th - 8th Grade Track & Field
The Oakhill Day School Middle School (4th - 8th) Track & Field team participates in the Parochial League of Kansas City (PLKC). Throughout the season the team will participate in four weekly Parochial League meets. When not competing within the league, the team also participates in other meets around the city. In the past, the team has participated in a few of the following meets; Barstow Invitational, 7th/8th MOKAN Meet, and the 4th-6th Sion Fun Run to name a few.
The Track & Field program at Oakhill is coached by Chris Fernandez, Jake Kleyh, and Rebecca Kimmerle. These three coaches bring with them over 8 years of experience coaching track & field at Oakhill, and many more years of competing. In the fall of 2018 Coach Fernandez will be entering his 5th season running the program, Coach Kimmerle will be entering her third season, and Coach Kleyh will be entering his second season. Each one of these coaches bring with them a wealth of knowledge to share with their athletes. They have each run/competed at the college level and had many successes.
Since Coach Fernandez took over the program five years ago, and since the addition of Coach Kimmerle three years ago the team has grown and made tremendous strides over the years. In the spring of 2017 the team took home their third PLKC Track & Field City Championship. The team followed that up in 2018 with a second place finish at the PLKC City Championships. The Panthers look to bounce back in 2019 and reclaim their title! GO PANTHERS!
