Close to 500 Grade 4-6 elementary school athletes will converge at Columneetza secondary and Nesika elementary for the School District 27 Track and Field Meet Friday, June 5.
Events include long jump, triple jump, shot putt, the 400-metre and 100-metre races.
Throughout the month of May young athletes have been attempting to qualify by achieving minimum distances and times.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both school fields. Five events will be occurring at the same time in various area.
Spectators are asked to park on the streets around Nesika elementary and Lake City secondary’s Columneetza Campus and not in the back parking lot area of Columneetza.
On Thursday, boys and girls competing in the 1,000-metre race had their turn in the limelight.
