Padua Academy has won their third state championship of the 2013-2014 school year for the Track and Field Championship on February 21.  The track and field team did a magnificent job at Prince George’s County Sports Complex in Landover, Maryland.  They won the team title by racking up a total of 148 points.  The team is coached by Marnie Giunta and assisted by Sarah Opperman and Barry Swanson.  The senior leaders are Sarah O., Kristen H., Shannon H., Maddie S. and Anna T.

Padua Academy was led by wins from Maiya D. in the 55m, Haley L in the 800 meter, 4×400 meter, 4×800 meter, and Ashley M. in shot put.   Senior Haley L. and Freshman Taliah C. start the meet off with a 3rd and 4th place finish in the 55 meter hurdle prelims.  Other schools that were competing were Caesar Rodney, Milford, Middletown, Delaware Military Academy, Salesianum, etc.

Sophomore Emily E. decided to join the track and field team this year and stated, “My friends encouraged me to try it and having my friends helped me along the way.  Last year, I didn’t know what anything would be like so now that I knew what happened I thought go for it.”  Emily will be doing spring track and field and hopes Padua will bring home a championship again this year.
