Don't accuse Arundel Middle School students of being couch potatoes.

While a lot of folks spent the cold months hibernating and waiting for spring to come, the students participated in the Superfit Awards program, doing sit-ups, chin-ups, sit-and-reach and a one-mile run. They were measured for body fat content.

Students who scored 75 percent or better on all tests received an award from the physical education department.

The Governor's Physical Fitness Excellence Award were given to the following students:

* Sixth-graders Tara Ali, Daniel Aisquith, Dawn Belt, Rebecca Carlson, Dale Eskins, Ashley Hines, Michelle Hood, Kelly Hudmelsine, Kelly Jordan, Lindsey Kinslow, Matthew Malloy, Daphne Nichols, Andre Penny, Amy Pronto, Rocco Queen, Jessica Stacy, Andrew Stokrp, David Uzarek, Steven Welch and Ronnie Wint.

* Seventh-graders Cheryl Bender, Alan Brady, Ben Cimini, Rodney Farmer, Ryan Frostbutter, Alisha Hepfer, Christopher Hoose and Claude Parker.

* Eighth-graders Michelle Akers, Christine Bennett, Asia Bosley, Christopher Browning, Sara Deboer, Karen Diacont, Stephen Heller, Jill Jones, Veronica Ragland, Cullen Schar and Rachel Zimmerman.

Several students excelled at the fitness tests, scoring better than 90 percent in each category, and were given the Superintendent's Award: sixth-graders Patrick Crouse, Gregory Klinger, Johnny Reaves, Mark Tribbet, Charles Vint, Derek Wratchford; seventh-graders Ruth Fister and Analisa Poize; and eighth-graders Lindsey Carolson, Kevin Schar and Vicky Vint.

* This is also the last week for the Giant register receipt program for Arundel Middle.

Anyone wishing to turn in receipts can drop them off at the main office by Friday.
