SD 49's annual Track Meet was a great success.

School District #49 holds annual Track Meet under sunny skies

Despite predictions of a rainy, wet track meet the rain gods held off. Once again students from all the Valley schools demonstrated their prowess in track events such as the 100m, 200m, 800m and field events such as the javelin, shot put and discuss.

There were six categories: Tyke, Peewee, Bantam, Midget, Youth and Open. The meet took place over one and half days. The highlight of the event as usual was the students versus the staff in the 4 X 100 relay. Despite their best efforts, the staff went down to defeat at the hands of four very fast students.

The Track meet would not have been possible without the dedication of the staff and parent volunteers. We’d like to thank the staff at all the valley schools, parent volunteers, the Foods classes, Senior PE students, and former students without whom the track meet would not have been a success.
