Students return from Hershey competition with medals

The two Boulder City students who competed in the Hershey’s Track and Field Games returned home with medals after competing in the North American Finals that featured 450 9-14-year-old children from across the U.S. and Canada.

Logan Freeman, 10, competed in the standing long jump and placed ninth, with a jump of 5 feet, 10 inches. There were 11 competitors in his event and age division.

Lily Osman, 14, came in fourth place with her softball throw of 158.9 feet. She competed against 12 others in her age division.

“Although I wish I had done better, I’m thankful for Hershey for giving me this opportunity. I had a great time,” Lily said.

More than 150,000 children competed in the run, jump and throw qualifying events, seeking one of the 450 spots in the final competition in Hershey, Pa.
