Great weather and impressive performances highlighted the 2014 School District of Janesville Elementary Track and Field Meet held Tuesday and Wednesday, May 20 and 21.
Our young student athletes from 19 area elementary schools and our home schooled student athletes competed in 10 events. The fourth and fifth graders had a great time. Gold, silver and bronze awards were handed out in each event.
Each student entered three events and competed based on similar age, height and weight.
Van Galder Co. provided bus transportation to all students to and from their home schools and Monterey Stadium. More than 600 students participated from the district. That's not counting students from our parochial schools, the Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and home schooled students.
The district elementary track meet is a many-decades tradition. It gets better every year, and I am pleased to see this tradition continue.
Hats off to all our young student athletes. They are all winners!
