Live Oak Park was filled with third through sixth graders as well as spectators bright and early on Saturday for the 3rd annual All-City Pentathlon Meet sponsored by the Temple City Parks and Recreation Department. The participants came from the local elementary schools of Cleminson, Cloverly, La Rosa, Emperor and Longden . Approximately 100 elementary students participated in this years event.
The individual events included the 50 meter dash, standing long jump, standing triple jump, softball throw for distance, and 400 meters run. The schools then competed against each other in the baton relay race that included a runner from each grade from the school.
After all the events were completed the participants were treated to a free hot dog, chips, and a drink while waiting for the results of the days events to be revealed.
The qualifying events to the all city meet were held at the individual schools a few weeks prior to determined who would compete. The participants were given points for each event depending on either the distance or time in that event. As preparation for the events coaches would come out to the schools and teach the participants about each event and how to properly perform in that event.
The meet was created by Parks and Recreation Coordinator Mike Koski and is facilitated by Senior Recreation Leader Mike Roybal at the school sites through the STARS Club program.
