Students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School who participate in the school’s Fit Club finished first out of 24 schools in the 2nd Annual Suffolk Zone Fit Club Competition on May 8th. The goal of Fit Clubs is to help students learn how to live active, healthy lifestyles, while being a part of a team, tackling challenges, and having fun.

The competition, which took place at Lincoln Ave. Elementary School in Sayville, consisted of teams comprised of students from grades four and five all throughout Suffolk County. Each school created four teams of 24 students—six boys and six girls from grades four and five. Events included exercises such as box jumps, bear crawls, sit-ups, agility runs and tire flips. The competition was fierce but the members of the team demonstrated tremendous grit, teamwork, and perseverance from start to finish.
