SAMS hosts a successful annual District Track Meet

Athletes representing all Valley schools participated.

On May 7 and 8 over 200 athletes from grades one – 12, a few staff members and community members all participated in numerous running and field events pushing themselves to achieve their best while also cheering on fellow athletes. The weather held up and after 10:30 a.m. on the first day it was nothing but sunshine! Athletes representing all Valley schools participated. We would like to thank School District 49, the coaches, school staff and community members who helped make this meet a success.

A big thanks to Caroline and Annika Granander, Charlie Endicott and to all members of the community who volunteered their time to help us out at the meet and practices.

Luc Tremblay and Colleen O’Shea also worked very hard running practices for BCE and should be congratulated on their efforts and dedication to Track and Field and their athletes. Lindsay Gericke and Martha Finch worked hard coordinating practices at Acwsalcta School as did Renee Johnson for the Bella Coola Adventist Academy.

Track ribbons will be distributed to all of the participating schools in the next few weeks.

The track meet is always a highlight in the spring, and the crowds were wowed by the display of athletiscm, sportsmanship and, of course, the fun relays. The teachers this year prevailed over the students in the relay.

Meredith McIlwain and Alex Boileau (Track Meet directors) would like to thank everyone for their support in hosting another successful track meet.
