The top three girls and three boys from each of Canyons’ eight middle schools will run a 2-mile cross country race around the Eastmont campus. The event is the inaugural contest of Canyons District’s middle-school intramural athletics program, which was developed to promote healthy lifestyles and gauge interest for future competitive sports programs. Individual winners will be awarded medals and the fastest teams will receive trophies to be displayed at their respective schools. Throughout the year, the intramurals program for middle school students also will support 3-on-3 basketball and Ultimate Frisbee competitions, as well as a one-day districtwide tournament for each sport.
