Queen of Apostles School Participates in the Annual Archbishop Mitty Track Meet

June 2016

 

On a beautiful Sunday in May, 32 Queen of Apostles 5th through 8th graders participated in the Archbishop Mitty Annual Track Meet. Competing against elementary and middle schoolers from seven other Catholic schools, each athlete could choose one field event and two running events to compete in. The running events varied from 50m to the quarter mile, and Queen of Apostles School fielded several 4 x 100 relay teams.

To prepare for the track and field events, students attended practice twice a week for a month leading up to the meet. Their hard work paid off. By the end of the event, the volunteer coaches Herschel Lelaind, Christian Benvenuti, and Lawrence Harlan had lost count of how many medals the Queen of Apostles team won! Along with their great performances, our team enjoyed a celebratory atmosphere at the event. Several families brought popup tents and others contributed to a spontaneous group picnic that was enjoyed by everyone. Congratulations team on your very successful day!
