The event kicked off with a Fulton Elementary School sprinter winning the girls 100-meter sprint and concluded with a Galveston Elementary School team claiming victory in the co-ed division 4 by 400 relay.
By the end of the night, Santan Elementary School took home the boys’ team title, while Riggs Elementary School secured the girls’ championship. The spirited event featured athletes participating in various races, field events such as javelin and standing long jump, and heats for adaptive students.
Parents and teammates cheered on their schools with supportive messages like, “You got this! … Keep up the great performance! … Let’s go, Sanborn!” The track meet was also an excellent opportunity to showcase the CUSD physical education programs and staff responsible for training their student-athletes. All 32 elementary schools took part in the competition.
