A functional health test called Project Superfit was administered in October to third- and fifth- graders at Odenton Elementary School.

The goal of Project Superfit is to promote participation in health-related physical fitness activities by Maryland youth. The project was conducted to assist teachers, parents and students in objectively measuring such components of physical fitness as muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, body composition and cardio-respiratory endurance.

A report that listed the students' scores on the five test components, then converted the score to a percentile, was sent home to the parents of all participants. Parents are able to compare their child's performance with other students in Maryland of the same age and sex.

The following students scored highest in their grades: Third-graders Anusha Gandhi, Stephanie Marin, Christina Elliot, Julianne Ferguson, Ronnie Martin and Matthew Rose; Fifth-graders Joshua Rice, Melinda Thompson, Christina Woodruff, Kenny Burke, Melissa Knight, Falon Vance, Lamont Williams, Shawn Fox, Anthony Sahli, John Dean, Kevin Dyer and Christa Ogle.

Volunteers who helped with the mile run were Jackie Watson, Janet Clark, Linda Brosig and Theresa Yates.
