LANDOVER – Cerys Enders, a fifth grader, competed at the All Comers Developmental Track and Field Meet at the Prince George’s County Recreation Center on Saturday.

She was there with the Dorchester County Department of Recreation and Parks’ Vikings Youth Track and Field Team, now in its second season.

Competing among several hundred other young athletes, Cerys beat her personal best in three events. The Vikings are wrapping up their winter campaign, having trained children from third through ninth grade.

Children on the team learn the basics about sprinting, relays, long jump, shot put and discus.
