A handful of youngsters braved the weather this week to compete in the local Hershey’s Track and Field Meet. The annual event is a country-wide series of competitions that start at the community level and advance to the state and national levels. Winners from Tuesday’s meet, held at Hood River Valley High School, qualify for the Oregon Hershey’s Meet next month at Hayward Field in Eugene. Winners at that meet will qualify for a seven-state regional team that will travel to Hershey, Pa., for the national meet in August.
