An annual School District 27 tradition continued June 4-5 with the grades 4-6 SD27 District Track and Field Meet.

Hundreds of athletes and eight schools took part combining for more than 1,000 entries in multiple events.

Kelvin Parent, district track and field co-ordinator, said volunteers, including teachers and parents, all helped make the event — which had a new format this year with all of the event running simultaneously — go smoothly.

“Everyone really enjoyed the new format,” Parent said. “The day was gorgeous … the volunteers were excellent, the kids were excited, so nothing but positive coming out of the whole day.”

The following are the gold-, silver- and bronze-medal winners in each event, the aggregate winners and combined team scores:
