The district had two teams competing. One was comprised of students from Norwood Avenue, Pulaski Road and East Northport Middle, while the other included students from Ocean Avenue, Fifth Avenue and Northport Middle School. Most importantly, all students had a wonderful time.
Club leader and physical education teacher Stacie Norman said “This competition is very difficult, and we were ecstatic to hear of our 1st place finish. It was nice to see a group pulled from different schools come together to work and support each other as one. All involved should see this as a considerable accomplishment.”
