Schuyler students compete in fitness challenge

WATKINS GLEN—Teams of three boys and three girls in grades five through eight from Watkins Glen, Odessa-Montour and Bradford competed against each other Tuesday, May 19.
This is the fourth annual competition among the three schools. Next year’s competition will be held at Odessa-Montour school. Participants from each school are determined, in large part, by fitness activities presented in the “President’s Challenge.”
The top three overall competitors in each grade represent their school in the competition. “This is Schuyler County’s attempt to battle the obesity problem,” stated Denise Wickham, Watkins Glen’s Athletic Director.
Five activities are attempted by each student athlete. The shuttle run measures agility. Pull ups measure upper body strength. Sit ups measure abdominal strength. The one mile run measures cardiovascular strength . The sit and reach measures flexibility.In the competition, scoring is achieved by adding up the place points,e.g. first place gets one point, second place gets two points, etc. Low score wins.
