Several students swept the awards at the Horse Lake Elementary School (HLES) track-and-field day on June 2.

Students from Bridge Lake Elementary came out to join in the competition. The competition in some of the events was fierce, including the 13-year-old high jump as Xander Sarver, Cole Allan and Tyson Ford fought for the highest jump for more than five final jumps before Sarver took the win.

Other pillars of skill included Vanessa Betschart who swept the 11-year-old girls and Kyson Hopson who came first in nearly every event.

While the level of skill was a constant feature, the teachers running each event were quick to offer advice and pointers on how the students could improve.

Retired HLES teacher Karam Parsad at the high jump station was always offering ways of conquering the leap.

Most of this is a mental game. If they start off thinking they can’t do it, it will never happen. They need to believe they can to accomplish it.”

HLES principal Maria Telford says she was proud of the students commitment and sportsmanship
