Over one hundred athletes competed in several track & field events at HMS last week.

The time has come. Time to lace up your best running shoes and sprint to the finish line. With the weather getting warmer, Harvest thought it was a great time to start the after school Track and Field unit. “I think it’s fun to run and hang out with friends and see who’s faster,” says Jay Robichau.

It started on Monday 14, 2014, and the practices were on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:00. Students first went to ACE (After Class Enrichment) and got a healthy snack so they were energized and ready to run. Then they headed out to the field and started their practice.

They could have chosen from the shot put, long jump, high jump, 100 meter dash, 4 x 100, 1 x 400, 4 x 400 or the mile. Jade Diaz states, “It was really fun and definitely worth your time.”

Individuals received different awards for what place they came in. You could have earned a first, second, or third place ribbon. Overall, The track and field unit was a big success at Harvest and students are looking forward to sign-ups next year.
