Track Meet Success

I want to express my humble gratitude to the Tiger, Viking, and Judge track communities. We had a fun and successful track meet this past Saturday despite the inclement weather, everyone was in good spirits.

Special thanks to all the young athletes who competed and trained hard over the 5 weeks. To ALL the coaches, this program wouldn’t be possible without your positive influence and support: Marsha Newman, Jill Curry, Megan Gale, Courtney Sebahar, Rima McComas, Martina Gehrig, Mat Crandal, Gemma Pessina, Kirk Thomas, Morgan Commagere, Paul Curtiss, Alicia Sloan, Kristin Bonacci, Brett Allen, and Monte Still.

Big shout out to Coach Mele and the Judge Bulldog track team; they were instrumental in helping coach the younger athletes throughout the meet and ensuring things went smoothly. Along with Monte Still and Brett Allen, who bring years of experience to helping the track program thrive.

Thank you parents for allowing your children this opportunity and braving the cold at the track meet to positively cheer on your athlete. Last but not least, thank you Mrs. Betsy Hunt and Mr. Gary Green for your support!
