Women’s Track began at North as part of the Girls Athletic Association (GAA). The GAA allowed females to participate in intramural athletics since they were not allowed to participate in inter-school competition. This lasted until the passage of Title IX in the early 1970’s. At that time, schools began offering chanced for female students to compete as the males students did. The first state track meet for women was held in the 1971-1972 school year. North has never won a Women’s state track championship. The scare records do not have any Lady Polar participating in the tournament. These records are incomplete and North could have had participant and individual champions.
