Hundreds of Ottumwa students spent Wednesday afternoon running the oval at Schafer Stadium. The Elementary Track Meet provides an opportunity for students in grades four, five and six to experience track. Students train for several weeks prior to the event and compete for medley and relay positions. Here is a profile of one of our participants.
