The 35th annual Hershey’s Track and Field Meet was held May 26 at Thunder Mountain High School where 41 of Juneau’s youth ages 9-14 participated in 30 different running events, the standing long jump and softball throw.
As everyone knows, such an event cannot take place without the gracious help of volunteers. This year’s meet was extremely successful largely due to the much-appreciated voluntary assistance from the following individuals:
We wish to express our thanks to the TMHS track and field team head coach, Scott May, for his invaluable knowledge, experience and enthusiasm in seeing to it that everything ran smoothly, as planned. Our gratitude is also extended to these TMHS track and field team assistant coaches and athletes who also proficiently aided with various event supervision duties throughout the afternoon: Nick Bursell, Kenny Fox, Brian Gwaltney, Maddie Hall, Katie Jones, Ashlynn Kay, Ethan Kramp, Emilyanne Lohrey, Michael Lohrey, Jaren Smith, Alex Sousa, James Steeves, Danielle Steinman, Kari Tupou, Hugh Watts and Nicolas Wright. Finally we’d like to thank the TMHS activities director, Rhonda Hickok, for allowing us to use her school’s excellent new track facility and football field for our meet.
Again, thank you one and all for your generous spirit.
