CRESSON, CAMBRIA COUNTY -- These 5 to 18 year old kids are part of the 160 who make up the Mountain Top Track and Field Club.
This volunteer led club has fielded spring track meets for years and just began
Fall cross country practices every Tuesday and Thursday.

At the helm is Coach Lois Smith who says, "It helps with their physical abilities. It also helps mentally. It can keep them with their grades up in school it's good for  you to learn when you're younger so that you can have a healthy lifestyle as you get older."

This club had 9 compete in the National Junior Olympics last Spring.
2 of those won National awards in javelin.
