A little friendly competition

Weston Mitchell, Jacob Koesler, Brayden Castleman and Dominic Sharp compete in the 50 meter dash at Oakdale and Loge’s Track and Field Day last week.

 Oakdale and Loge elementary schools came together for a little friendly competition at a combined track and field day.

 Students from the two schools competed in sprints, relays and long jump as well as softball and baseball throws.

 Oakdale Elementary School Principal Jamie Pryor said while students from either school were pitted against each other as rivals, many students competed against friends and teammates from other programs.

 She said the students were supportive not only of their classmates but also their friends from the opposing school.

 “A lot of the kids are friends,” she said. “It’s fun for them running against each other but being supportive at the same time.”
