Annual McNair Track Meet Held on Thursday

COLUMBUS – Athletes from five different communities gathered at Pawnee Park on Thursday to compete in the annual McNair Track Meet.

7th and 8th graders from CMS, Scotus, Lakeview, Schuyler, Fremont, Norfolk, Beatrice, and York all participated in the events, that began at 9 a.m. Students participated in a wide range of field events, including high jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault, in addition to shot and discus.

The running events began at 10 a.m. with the 3200 meter relay. The 100 meter hurdles and 100 meter dash followed at 11 a.m.

Columbus Middle School Principal Jordan Anderson says the event wouldn’t be possible without the help of the volunteers. The meet was initially scheduled to be run on Tuesday, but weather forced it to be pushed back until Thursday.
