In what has become a springtime tradition, elementary students from across St. Tammany Parish showcased their athletic abilities and good sportsmanship at the ninth annual STPPS District Fitness Meet held at Lakeshore High.
Four student representatives from more than 20 schools competed in the 50-yard dash, standing long jump, shuttle run, pull-ups, curl-ups, sit and reach, and the 600-yard run.
Awards were given to the top three boys and girls finishers in each event. The top three schools and the top overall boys and girls performers were recognized as well.
For the second consecutive year, Tchefuncte Middle was the overall team winner. Lancaster Elementary finished second, followed by Bonne Ecole Elementary in third.
Tchefuncte Middle students also took home the top boys’ and top girls’ winner, Breanna Fisher and Timothy “Quinn” Haley.
The 2019 Louisiana State Elementary Fitness Meet will be held April 27 at Alexandria Senior High in Alexandria.
