Track & Field at OPA: 

OPA Saddleback Valley has been invited to compete against the top runners in the 2nd Annual South Orange County Open Track and Field Meet on March 15th at Mission Viejo High School. This meet is open to participants of all skill levels for ages 6-15 (with proof of grade no higher than 8th).  This will be the first year that Oxford Preparatory Academy has participated in this track meet and we would love for all of our Champions to participate in this great event.
