The annual Hershey’s Track Meet brought several dozen youngsters to Hood River Valley High School’s Henderson Stadium last weekend to compete for a shot at the state meet this summer at Eugene’s legendary track and field venue, Hayward Field. Kids were able to entre three events and had to choose from softball throw, standing long jump, 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, and 1600 meter runs. Of the field, 22 kids qualified for state this year – the highest number organizer Troy Tactay can recall. At state, kids compete for a shot at the national meet in Hershey, Pa.
