The sun was hot over Kent Elementary’s fields on Thursady, June 13, but that didn’t stop hundreds of students from giving their best effort at the annual track and field competition.

Students from across the Fraser Cascade School District (Kent Elementary, Harrison Hot Springs Elementary, Boston Bar Elementary, Coquihalla Elementary, Silver Creek Elementary, AESS and Hope Secondary), as well as students from Agassiz Christian School and Seabird Island Community School came out to Kent Elementary for the district’s annual track and field competition.

Boys and girls from Grades 4 to 7 competed in long jump, shot put, ball throw and high jump, as well as the 100-metre dash, the 400-metre dash and relays.
