It was the perfect day for middle school students (Grades 6 to 9) in the area to come out for Track and Field events on June 6.
Over 350 students from Breton School, Caroline School, Condor School, Drayton Christian School, Leslieville School, Pioneer Middle School, Rocky Christian School, St. Dominic Catholic High School, St. Matthew Catholic School, TaOtha School, David Thompson High School, and West Central High School came out to participate in track day.
“It’s going really well,” said Rocsan Williams, physical education teacher at West Central High School and an organizer for the event. “The weather is perfect.”
“It’s awesome,” said Grade 9 student Juliet Korth from David Thompson High School. “It’s nice, but nerve-racking because there’s a lot of competition.”
Betty Hamilton drove from Drayton Valley to watch her grandkids participate.
“I love it because it brings back memories from when I was a kid and doing track and field,” she said. “It’s good to see them still doing it.”
At the end of the day, Rob Duiker, one of the organizers for the event and the principal of Rocky Christian School, said, “I thought it went great. We had several positive comments. And the weather was great too.”
