Several Morris Area athletes participated in the 2012 Hershey's Track & Field State Meet held on June 23 at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter. Two Morris Area entrants won first-place ribbons at the state meet. The age 9-10 girls' 4X100 relay team of LaRae Kram, Emma Bowman, Kaylie Raths, and Olivia Lebrija placed first. Kaylie Raths also took first place in the 400-meter dash in the 9-10-year-old race. The Hershey's games provide a quality recreation and school program where children ages 9-14 are introduced to physical fitness through basic track and field events such as running, jumping, and throwing.
