Exeter-Milligan Field Day!

Exeter-Milligan held their annual Elementary Field Day on Friday, May 5 in Exeter.  The students competed in relay’s on the track along with field events like softball throw, high jump, and long jump.  A lot of the students had the opportunity to try hurdles of different heights as well.  The younger elementary enjoyed a giant tug of war while the older students got to use the new long jump pit and the rest of the new field area.

 Fifth grader Josh Meyer takes flight in the long jump.

 Logan Krupicka just makes it over the high jump bar.

 Elementary students pass the baton during a relay.
