This afternoon, under the executive direction of Coach Larry Frost, the delegates took to the Ed Weir Track to compete in track and field events. This morning’s thunderstorm was little more than a memory beneath the blaring, humid sun. With skill and determination, the delegates gave their all in a variety of events, including: shot put, discus, high jump, long jump, 100 meter dash, 400 meter dash, 800 meter, 1600 meter, 4–100 meter, and 4–400 meter. At the end of the day, while the delegates thoroughly demonstrated their athletic skills, they also learned that their counselors still had a thing or two to teach them.
