A small but competitive Group of Five Royal City Track and Field Club JD athletes competed in their first club meet of the season. Not only were medals won but a JD Award Standard was accomplished as well.
Angus Steele won a trio of gold medals for 600m, 60m dash and 100m for 9 year old boys’ and Cameron Dewith took gold in 600m, 4th in both the 60m and 100m dash in the 10 year old boys’ category.
Elizabeth Bowles won a strong 4th place in both the 800m and 1200m for 12 year old girls’.
In the 10-year old girls’ group, Emily Bowles won a silver in the 1600m and a bronze in the 600m, and Kate Bowles took 7th in high jump and top 10 performances for the 600m and 60m dash.
It is worth noting that for his performance in the 600m, Steele (9-year old boys’) set a new meet record, made the BC Top 10 list and accomplished a JD Standard for his time of 1:58:06 and Dewith (10-year old boys’) set a new meet record for his time of 1:57:39 in the 600m.
Congratulations to this group for their accomplishments this past weekend!
