Students Compete in Track and Field Events

Preschoolers at Hogg's Hollow competed in a track and field meet created for young super achievers on March 17. The students showed off new skills polished on a daily basis since the beginning of the school year.

In the Hogg's Hollow tradition, the St. Patrick's Day celebrations are enhanced by the school's annual meet where students compete in track and bike races, tug of war, rock-climbing wall and more.

During the meet, Lety Geer, whose 4-year old son Evariste attends the program, helped start the contestants in the 4-year-old category.

"It's so easy and loads of fun to cheer the children on. I love it because it's my favorite school activity," she said.

"Get ready, get set, go!" shouted Alex Peterson, to a group of young bikers ready to race two miles around the track. Peterson, a La Cañada resident whose son Harry competed in each event, has attended the meet throughout her daughter's tenure at Hogg's Hollow.

Spaghetti was served for lunch, and a dance to fiddle music followed the awards ceremony when medals, prizes and ribbons were presented.
