State ribbons were awarded to students who placed eighth or better, with several Sappington students meeting that goal:

• In the 11-12 year old boys' division, fifth-grade students David Howard and Brendan Ludwig finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the softball throw.

• In the 11-12 year old girls' division, fifth-grader Olivia Jones finished third in the softball throw, seventh in the 400-meter run and seventh in the 800-meter run.

The Hershey's Track and Field Games were started to help get children on the right track, teach lifelong lessons and have fun, according to the organization's website. It is the largest youth sports program of its kind in North America, with hundreds of thousands of children competing every year.
