Posted by Village School Athletics on May 08 2017 at 05:29AM PDT

The Middle School Track team has concluded its 2017 season and we are so proud of how far we have come. The HJPC championships were a success overall and the kids worked very hard to build up for that event. We had a lot of people get great times and personal records in their events. This year we definitely put the Village School on the map as a force to reckon with. The Middle School track staff is so proud of the effort given by every athlete.

Out of 12 schools at HJPC
8th grade Boys finished 6th
8th grade Girls finished 3rd
7th grade Boys finished 2nd (the margin from 1st was 1.5 points)
7th grade Girls finished 3rd
6th grade Boys finished 10th
6th grade Girls finished 5th

We also beat 18 total Middle School records this year. 9 for the boys and 9 for the girls.

We would like to acknowledge every member of the team for their character, commitment, work ethic, and attitude throughout the course of the season. They all knew they would be competing every week within the team for individual events at each track meets. There were no complaints and maximum efforts from all. We would like to thank all of the parents for their support throughout the season as we are grateful. Go Vikings!
