BFMS’s track and field earned accolades this year.

The track team had their first all-comers meet on April 12 and their second all-comers meet on April 20 at the College of Alameda, and BFMS’s field team had their first all-comers meet on April 14 and their second all-comers meet on April 21 at Encinal High School.

Middle schoolers from BFMS participated in the track events of the 1600 meter run, the 200 meter dash, the 400 meter dash, the 100 meter dash, the 800 meter run, and the 4×200 meter relay, and the field events of the running long jump, the shot put, and the mini-javelin, the new field event this year.

“Everyone on the team did a great job on their first times out,” said Coach Joni Reynolds. “I was especially proud of the team members who took a risk and tried events that were out of their comfort zones!”
