The Mini-Meet Track series at the UW-Superior outdoor track got off to a promising start Tuesday with a strong turnout for the opening event.

Longtime runners, college students and elementary school students all shared the track for the series of fun races.

The mini-meet began with Gavin Kennedy winning the 100-meter dash and Ethan Vieth winning the 800-meter run.

Former Superior Spartan Leah Holmes, now a member of the UW-Milwaukee cross country and track teams, won the open mile in 5 minutes, 32 seconds. Event organizer and current Spartan cross country coach Lee Sims posted the top time in the 5K cross country event.

 In the predicted mile, Tammy Schilling and Tim Carlsness took top honors. Both were just two seconds off of their predicted times.

The next night of races in the mini-meet series is set for July 21.
