Little Olympics Mettle

Tuesday, May 26, 2015
A longstanding Greencastle Schools tradition, annually marking the waning days of the school year for elementary students, continued Tuesday with the Little Olympics unfolding at Harbison Stadium at Greencastle High School. Action includes Olivia Headley pulling away to claim victory in the fifth-grade 100-meter dash competition, while in the wheelbarrow race, Rebecca Hebb (foreground) finishes second by a nose to Alice Howard. The Greencastle Little Olympics reportedly began in the 1930s as field day competition among the three elementaries at the time -- Jones, Miller and Ridpath schools. (Courtesy photos/TIM TRIGG)
