Three athletes represented Royal City Track and Field Club very well at the Centennial Meet in Kamloops May 15-17, medaling in throws and competing to finals on the track.

In the 12-year old boys’ category, David Patry-Smith took the gold medal for his shot put throw, while 14-year old sister and teammate Jenevieve Patry-Smith won gold in the midget category for her discus throw of 29.78 (a PB for Patry-Smith) and also won gold in shot put and silver in hammer when she threw to 36.17 (also a PB). Jenevieve also won the javelin event beating both the field of midget girls and the midget boys with a PB throw of 39.70.

Also in the midget category, teammate Brianna Bates took silver for her javelin throw, just shy of 30 while she also competed well on the track, making it to the midget finals in the 100m with a PB of 13.62.

Congratulations to the accomplished trio!
