It’s been a busy week for the Grade School Track Team! We welcomed Tapestry back to SMSD yesterday for another exciting meet! We split in half and kicked things off with the Long Jump and Softball Throw. Over at the Long Jump, Saul Alvira soared 9’7” for our farthest jump. Meanwhile, Kioneyshka Alvira-Jurado led at the Softball Throw with an impressive 135 ft. We then moved to the 75 Yard Dash, where the players raced across the finish line in each age bracket at incredible speeds. Kearah Kelly achieved our fastest sprint at 10:94. The last event was the 4x100 Relay, where our players worked together to pass the baton around the track. Emma Foster, Briona Zuppa, Julia Bronneberg, and Kioney Alvira-Jurado achieved our best relay time at 1:15:28. We closed the meet by shaking hands and congratulating all players on a job well done. Our last meet is Wednesday, May 25th at 3:30pm right here at SMSD against St. Benedict’s. Come on out and catch the action!
Arch Diocesan Outdoor Track and Field Meet- Tuesday, May 17, 2016
SMSD elementary and middle school students experienced quite a thrill at the Annual Diocesan Outdoor Track and Field Meet yesterday. We headed out to St. Francis High School at 9:30am to take on local Catholic schools in various track and field events. While some of our students knew what to expect, it was the first time some of our students were out on the track representing SMSD. Excitement filled the air as we made our way to the bleachers. We warmed up and stretched as a group, showing that we were in this together. Feeling confident and ready, we began our events. The day started with the 300 meter relays, where our students raced around the track in teams of four students per age group for both the boys and the girls. When the relays were finished, we regrouped and prepared for our field events. Many of our students participated in the 75 meter dash, sprinting across the finish line at full speed. Jonathan Allen and Kassim Kassim qualified to the final rounds for their age brackets! Meanwhile, Julia Bronneberg, Moontaha Shalbi, and Ryan Brzezinski represented SMSD at the Softball Throw, where they did their best to hurl the softball across the field. Over at the Running Long Jump, Kioney Alvira-Jurado and Isa Habeeb soared unbelievable distances as they leapt into the sand. Isa Habeeb earned a third place ribbon for the boys! Congratulations, Isa! When all of the events were finished, we got back on the buses and headed back to school, beaming with pride for all that we accomplished on the field. When you see our students, please congratulate them for a job well done!

The Grade School Track & Field Team welcomed St. Mary’s of Swormville to SMSD yesterday for an exciting meet. The sun was shining and the students were smiling as we greeted each other and headed over to the Long Jump and Softball Throw. Kioney Alvira-Jurado soared 11’9” for our farthest jump. Michael Norris threw the softball an impressive 138 ft for our farthest throw. We then collected and moved to the 75 Yard Dash, where the players raced across the finish line in each age bracket at blazing speeds. JJ Kent sprinted across the finish line in 10.78 seconds for our fastest time and his personal best. Our last event was the 4x100 Relay, where players passed the baton and raced around the track. JJ Kent, Saul Alvira, Francis Nguyen, and Michael Norris achieved our best relay time and were first across the finish line. No matter the times or distances, both teams won out on that track because of the friendly, positive attitudes displayed. All students gave each other high-fives after the Long Jump. St. Mary’s of Swormville even surprised us by greeting our students with some sign language they learned in their classes! At the end of the meet, we shook hands and thanked each other for participating in such an awesome meet.
Next Tuesday (May 17th), SMSD will participate in the Arch Diocesan Track and Field Meet starting at 10:00am at St. Francis High School. It will most definitely be a day of fun! The following day, May 18th, we have a meet against Tapestry at 3:30pm right here at SMSD. Come watch the excitement!
