It's time for pre-season preparation and that means preparing to look great!  We have opened our online Pop Up Gear store for Mercer Island Track and Field logo wear!  We have shirts, shorts, hoodies, jackets for athletes, parents and fans.  The 2022 Team Captains have created a new logo for this Track and Field season (see above), so don't miss out on a chance to get some unique sportswear. Certain items are available with the traditional Club logo.  Every item is available to anyone, young and old.
