Edison's track/field team and Northeast youth track/field teams joined together with Ward 3 City Council member Jacob Frey and Ward 1 city Council member Kevin Reich to commemorate the newly renovated track/field at Thomas Edison High School. 

The evening started out with a run from Webster elementary to Edison’s track and field. Edison's girls' track team won state last season and had the opportunity to challenge City Councilman Jacob Frey to a race on Edison's new track. It was a close race with Jada taking the lead, Mariana Cress came in second and a close finish between Councilman Jacob and State Champ Jia for third!
 
The Northeast youth track/field teams, one of the largest track/field teams in the city, uses Edison's track regularly for practices. Edison's track has been redesigned to conserve water making it one of the "greenest" tracks in the city. 
 
Thank you to all the athletes, families, fans, staff and community for supporting Northeast athletics and joining us in this celebration!
