APPLETON, Wisconsin (WFRV) – Make it to the Olympics, the folks at Appleton West High School are giving you bang for your buck.
On Wednesday, Local 5 watched in amazement as community members of all ages and skill levels come together at Terror Twilight Track’s 3rd Annual Gathering for a friendly and fun competition promoting both the safe physical fitness and community engagement.
Principal of Appleton West High School, Mark McQuade, who enthusiastically participated in the event, said: “We really encourage the community to come together, have a healthy way of having fun and celebrating a bit. ”
The Terror Twilight had all the intensity and thrill of watching events one would normally see in a track and field competition, including the 50-meter sprint, 100-meter sprint, 400-meter sprint, the 400 meter relay, the 1600 meter relay, shot put, long jump, high jump, 1 mile run and fun run for kids.
During the events, the participants not only enjoyed running laps, but between laps they also had the chance to catch up and hang out with old friends and peers. “I have enjoyed my four years at Appleton West and seeing people from the past is always a great feeling,” said Appleton West alumnus Carter Feiler.
