OLF Elementary participates in the annual Nativity track meet held every spring at St. Patrick High School. Nine Catholic elementary schools meet at St. Patrick High School to compete in various track and field events ranging from relays, dashes, and long jumps to softball throws. Students from second grade to sixth grade compete in these events. Our physical education teacher starts training for this event in early spring on our state-of-the-art track.
In 2019, 43 Falcons participated in the track meet representing grades 1st through 6th. Our track stars brought home 17 ribbons for finishined 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Our 1st place finishers included 2nd grader Patrick Arguelles in the boys 50-yard dash, 3rd grader Liam Schruff in the boys 50-yard dash, 3rd grader Liam McDuffie in the boys long jump, 3rd grader Camryn Britt in the girls long jump, 4th grader Zachary Belvel in the boys long jump, 5th grader Nathan Schruff in the boys 50-yard dash, and 6th grader Will Parker for boys softball throw.
