At the only home meet of the 2013 track season, seniors and their parents were recognized for their participation and two other community members involved in the program were recognized.

Seniors Erick Oscarson, Marissa Palazzo, Yesenia Pickett, Manny Munoz, Isabel Negrete, and Maribel Negrete were recognized for their hard work put into the program as athletes over the years. Dave Hellyer and Al Byrd were also recognized.

Dave Hellyer has volunteered to help start Chelan Track and Field meets for over 20 years. Chelan Head Coach Skip Boyd said Hellyer is a former track athlete at Lakes High School back in the 1960s. Lakes was a 3A school when Hellyer went there. He ran the mile with a best time of 4:32 before moving onto the University of Washington to play soccer and study law.

Al Byrd is a former Chelan track athlete and he holds the 800 meter run record for Chelan High School. Byrd ran the 800 meter run in 1:54 in 1972 and the record still holds. Skip said Byrd's timing has stood the test of time going on its 41st year.
