The first-ever Junior Russell Cup—a children’s event in the tradition of the 100-year old annual Russell Cup Track Meet—was held on Friday, April 5, at Carpinteria High School stadium. Kids from across Carpinteria Unified School District participated in track and field competitions, including races, long jump and shotput. “The Jr. Russell Cup was a resounding success,” said Patrick Cooney, athletic director for CUSD, “as the field was abuzz with an impressive swarm of talented young participants.”
