Sealston Running Club stronger than ever


Local elementary school running club takes physical fitness seriously

 

Thanks to Lori Ann Libby, Sealston Elementary health and physical education teacher, running has become more than a simple act of physical fitness for Fredericksburg metropolitan area elementary schools. Every Monday, images of second through sixth grade level kids running on the grounds of Sealston Elementary School have become a familiar sight.

In fact, since the day the elementary school opened its doors, the Sealston Running Club (SRC) has consistently competed beyond the foothills of King George. Some of the competitions include: Micha/YMCA 5K Turkey Trot & Coker Orthodontics/YMCA 1M Kid’s Run, King George Fall Festival 5k Run/Walk and Kids 1 Mile Fun Run, Chancellor Elementary School Run, Freedom Middle School Run, Coventry Games, Stafford Elementary School track meets, Richmond-area elementary school track meets, and University of Virginia track meets.

“Our course could take the rain, but we were more concerned with our hills and the bridge, especially by the third race,” Lady Eagles coach Cindy Flickinger said.  Their were three races: Developmental, girls varsity and boys varsity.

CBMS girls’ basketball soars

The future of Drifter girls’ basketball (4-2) is in good hands. After winning the Northern Neck District tournament championship last year, the Drifters have an opportunity to repeat last year’s Cinderella performance.
