The 2016-2017 season was considered a bounce back for the Racing Falcons. A group of young athletes in the sport of track and field worked to establish their place as a premier program both locally and nationally. Though the Falcons came up short in their bid for indoor and outdoor state team titles, they were successful in creating a positive buzz in athletic circles. The overall success of the Falcons has established CHS track and field one of the best middle distance programs in Alabama and earning the ranking of #4 Nationally (Boys 400m Squads). With the core of both the girls and boys teams returning, the 2017-2018 Falcons have the potential of being even better.
