The determination shows on the faces of these young competitors

On May 9 and 10, SAMS hosted all of the Valley schools (SAMS, BCE and Acwsalcta School) as well as Shearwater School for the annual district track meet. The weather cooperated nicely, and with the full participation of all the schools, the athletes and volunteers it was a very successful and fun meet for all.

There were many highlights both individual and team (relay) performances. We enjoyed the effort, determination and never give up attitude of the athletes. In addition, to see some athletes as young as four, such as Della Harestad run the 1500m was to say the least inspiring!!!

We really appreciate everyone’s help both setting up, organizing, participating and volunteering at the Track meet. We will need more volunteers next year especially as we hope to expand the age categories and event opportunities.

Results will be posted online or faxed to the local schools so be sure to check for them there. The future looks bright, who knows we might see some local athletes competing in Prince George next year.
