Cautiously making their way along the gym floor, two Wapakoneta Elementary School second-graders roll past the cones and turn a corner with small smiles marking their success.
Avery Hutt, 8, remembers what it was like when she didnâ€™t want to get off the mats where they sit to lace up their roller skates and fasten their wrist guards.
â€śThe first time, I donâ€™t think I went off the mats, now I am not scared at all,â€ť Avery said. â€śIn kindergarten, everyone kept falling.â€ť
Hannah Elling, 7, said skating is fun and each year they get better.
