Dedication of Mountain Vista Athletic Field


I’m sure you’ve all seen the new athletic field at Mountain Vista Middle School. Tonight was the dedication and we are off to the races, as it were.

Next April will be the first major event to be held there; the Hershey Track and Field Games will bring great attention to San Tan Heights and highlight San Tan Valley as a player in these sort of events. Jack Malpass and the Think Tank worked very hard to bring the Hershey Track and Field Games here and it promises to bring several hundred children to our new athletic field in a healthy and robust competition.

About The Hershey’s Track & Field Games Program

Hershey’s Track & Field Program was created over 30 years ago to promote youth physical fitness and provide fun learning experiences for children 9 to 14 years old. Youth track & field is a great way to get kids started in a physical fitness program.

It’s the largest youth sports program of its kind in the United States and Canada. Track & field meets take place in every state and every province in North America. Hundreds of athletes make it to the grand finale — the North American Final in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Join us as we help kids discover their potential, make new friends, and gain newfound self confidence. Every child is a winner with the Hershey’s Track & Field Games!
