Vejar Elementary students participated in the 2014 Mt. SAC Relays on March 22. The runners proudly showed determination and skill during the annual race day.
Fifty-five members of the school’s Track Team practiced for several weeks before the big day. And they wore special red team t-shirts during the track and field events held at Hilmer Lodge Stadium in Walnut.
“All our students did a great job,” said Principal Jennifer De Anda.
Every participant wins pins and ribbons at the Mt. SAC relays.
Parent volunteers helped pass out water and energy bars during the event. The kids enjoyed pizza and hamburgers when they were finished.
A special thanks to the numerous coaches and parent volunteers for their commitment to the team and to local business that donated snacks and food for the young athletes.
