r This event has been called the “Super Star Track Meet” because the participants are all special needs students with physical, developmental, behavioral/emotional disorders, or sensory impairment challenges and each gives their own starring performance. The special needs students in the third grade through the ninth grade from all the elementary schools in the Nebo School District are bused to Maple Mountain High School. The students are paired with a high school athlete and P.E. students to assist them through the various track events. The Super Star Track Meet held on the morning of May 3 was the 8th annual event.

The event started with a 50-meter dash and was followed by a 100-meter run and a 400-meter run. Other field events included standing long jump, a high jump, and a softball throw. The concluding event was a 400-meter wheelchair race. This year’s 2018 Super Star Track Meet involved over 250 special needs participants. It was a fun day for these kids, with a lot of happy faces and hand waving. Each participant received a medal to hang around their neck with pride in the accomplishments of the day.

One special feature of this day was a Live at Eleven Fox 13 television broadcast with Big Budah. His interaction with the kids was great and it was obvious he loves to make people laugh. He got our special needs athletes to do a sports cheer that was fun for all to see.
