Destin eighth graders celebrated the end of the school year with the 10th Annual Marlin Olympics on Friday. Eight teams representing different classrooms competed for first place during the all day event. The goal was to be the quickest team and score the most point in games including the hula-hoop relay, teacher ball, corn-hole and the Mississippi flood race. Later, teams elected players to race in individual events such as the mile run, the Iron Marlin multi-event and the Hunger Game talent competition.
