Loyola competes in the best track conference in the area, the MIAA. The JV team has been very competitive usually finishing in the top three and won the JV MIAA championships in 2013 and 2015.
The team takes part in dual meets versus other MIAA schools and runs in invitationals against the best competition in the state. Loyola has produced 87 MIAA champions in indoor and outdoor track and field in the program’s history.
A unique thing about track and field is that the JV and the Varsity practice and train together so the younger athletes learn the ropes from the older ones. This also promotes a unity in the program from grades nine to twelve.
For the last 34 years, Loyola has been coached by Jose Albornoz and Chris Cucuzzella. Jose is the longest tenured head coach at Loyola and second longest in the MIAA. Recent alumnus Matt Azzaro has joined the staff the last two years and brings a wealth of sprint and jump knowledge.
Running is a wonderful sport and lifetime activity, and we encourage all students interested in track and field to seek out Mr. Cucuzzella or Mr. Albornoz on campus.
