Coach Thompson’s 4th and 5th grade track team is in gear at La Mariposa. The sprints that the athletes have been trying out for are the 50 meter dash and the 75 meter dash. The jumps are long jump and high jump. To practice the long jump, we run and jump into a pit of sand. For high jump, you run and jump over a bar and land on a big mat. We have also tried out for the 800 which is two laps and the 400 which is one lap. There are two people that qualify for each race in each division to go to the Rotary Track Meet on June 1st at Camarillo High School. If you aren’t on the track team or didn’t qualify for the track meet, you can still come and cheer your school on.
