Hundreds of fourth and fifth graders from all of the elementary schools on Mercer Island gathered on the afternoon of Friday, June 7 to take part in the 43rd annual All Island track meet.
The long standing tradition brings together students from Island Park, Lakeridge, West Mercer and St. Monica to the Mercer Island High School track to compete in various track events.
From the softball throw to the 100 meter dash, students were cheered on by their parents and friends in the stands.
New this year, the schools celebrate late Island Park Elementary PE teacher Jesse Jaramillo with the first ever Jesse Jaramillo 400-meter fun run, which all students were invited to participate in.
Results were not yet available, but this story will be updated to include that information when it becomes available.
