The track meet is always the highlight of the year. This year the track meet is on Friday, May 18, 2018. The founder of the track meet is Mr. Fox and Mr. Wisler. The reason Mr. Fox is honored as one of the founders of the track meet is he was passed away of cancer at a very young age. He loved athletics and students as well.
For any student to prepare for a “main” event, you will try out for all of the events feature in the track meet in gym. To get into an event, you have to have some good scores in the event. If you don't get a good score in one event, you probably got a good score in another event. There are no new events this year, but sometimes in past years there have been new events. Speaking of events, Mr. Wisler’s favorite event is the high jump because he thinks it's a fun event to compete in it.
Sometimes there are some funny things that happen. The two liter bottle race is one of the funniest events at the track meet. The two liter bottle race is a race that you have a cup of water and a teammate that has a cup that is empty. When the teammate tries to pour the water into the bottle, sometimes the water gets everywhere and the student underneath the bottle gets soaked!
Mr. Wisler does not know if there will be any new high scores this year. The records that were broken last year were the 440 and the shot put for the boys. If records aren’t broken, it will still be fun to watch team relays, slingshot football and one of the most popular events, the Tug-Of -War.
We will see what happens on May 18th when all the athletes come together to compete!
