With cooperating weather at Wildcat Stadium on Friday morning, students and teachers had a field day at this year’s Special Olympics Track Meet.

“It is a fun day for us,” Melanie Johnson, Special Olympics coordinator for Temple Independent School District, said. “We are happy that the high school supports us in this effort and parents are always supportive of it and attend as well.”

The district-wide event was from 9 a.m. to noon with about 50 participants from Thornton Elementary, Bonham Middle School and Temple High School who competed in track and field events that focused on running, jumping and throwing.
