State Championship Isn't Only Record Broken for Padua Track & Field

The Panda Party continues on Broom Street this week as we celebrate the amazing accomplishments of our Padua Track & Field Program. This weekend, we won our 10th straight team title, the last eight in Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association Division I, and 20th overall dating to 1983. But the Pandas’ 211½ points were the most in meet history, boys or girls, regardless of division, and first 200 points or higher!!!
You can find all the details below, but simply put...EXTRAORDINARY!

While we are still waiting on photos to come in we want to send a shout-out to Mrs. Flanagan for sharing the beautiful ones she volunteered below. We know that not all events are represented, so dear Track & Field families, if you have photos you would like to have added to this album, please email them to us at! Let's crowdsource our congrats!
