Coach Camblin sends in this report on the North Shore Track Championships that were held yesterday at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby:
For a day that started out pretty grey and slightly miserable, the skies cleared and it turned out to be a gorgeous day at the track. Many of our athletes not only had a lot of personal bests, but also placed very well.
Top honours go to Emma Rastad, Grade 8, who placed first in every event she was entered in and was the overall Bantam Girls Aggregate Winner. (1st in 80m Hurdles, Long Jump and Triple Jump). ** Emma crushed her competition; She was 4 seconds faster in the hurdles than her next competitor, almost 60 cm’s further than the next in Long Jump and over TWO meters more in Triple Jump. I also believe Emma set a new North Shore Record in TJ for Bantam Girls!! In fact- out of all girls Grades 8-12- Emma had the second best jump!
Definite entries for the BC Provincial Meet (Seniors only) will be:
Grace Thompson- 1st 1500m, 2nd 3000m, 3rd 800m (Senior Girls) *qualifies for BC’s in all three events.
Gabby Zeitler- 1st Discus, 2nd Shot Put , 5th Javelin (Senior Girls) *qualifies for BC’s in Disc/ Shot
