Mary Hogan kids enjoy a day in the sun and on the track

MIDDLEBURY — On June 8, the fifth- and sixth-graders from Mary Hogan Elementary School participated in the school’s annual track and field meet, the brainchild of longtime physical education teacher Mike Quinn. 
Quinn, now retired, created the event years ago as an enjoyable way to introduce elementary school students to the sport of track and field and to celebrate both physical fitness and the impending end of the school year by being outside in the spring weather. 
The June 8 meet marked the first one ever Quinn did not oversee: Instead, Mary Hogan PE teacher Sabrina Butterfield took over that duty for the first time. 
While arguably all participants could be called winners after enjoying sunny weather outside on late-spring day, some students finished first in multiple events well. Sixth-grader Charlie Stone won three times, while fifth-grader Ella Tucker and sixth-graders Lia Robinson and Emma Brown each won twice.
