Last Wednesday, April 25, 2012, the fifth graders at Barnett Elementary were able to compete against other fifth graders from several other schools in the district.  We were well represented with runners in every event and in the two field events--softball throw and long jump.  Fearing the same weather that sixth grade experienced only the day before, many students had sunblock and umbrellas to block the sun.  However, the day started with a slight drizzle, that soon ceased and created the perfect weather for the track meet--overcast and cool.  The students loved being able to see all the participants without squinting and yelled as loud as they could whenever one of their friends ran past.  It was an exciting outing for everyone!
