On Thursday, April 9, 2015, Montverde Academy’s Varsity Track and Field team competed very well in the FHSAA Division 2, District 8 meet. The event was held at Lake Highland Prep, located in nearby Orlando, Florida. Montverde Academy Head-Coach Sue Tortora informed Montverde.org, “Those who did not qualify for the region meet did a great job, and with most of them being underclassmen, and I look forward to their future in track and field.” The top 4 finalists in each event at districts qualified to compete at the FHSAA Track and Field Regionals being held this THURSDAY April 23rd, 2016 (also being at Lake Highland Prep).
