Passtrak athlete qualifies for Canadian Nationals

By Ritch Braun



Three Passtrak athletes attended a mini track meet in Calgary on May 18 and all three produced the best results of their lives.

Maia Jorgensen ran the 100 metres in the Midget girl’s age group (14 and 15 years old), and in spite of battling a head wind recorded a lifetime best time of 13.70 seconds to place fifth in a field of 31 athletes. She was the fastest 14-year-old in the group.

Josh Schulz cleared 1.75 metres for first place in the high jump to tie his lifetime best performance in the Youth boy’s category (16 and 17 years old).  That also broke the existing Passtrak club record which sat at 1.66 metres.  He then whipped the discus out to 25.43 metres for a third place finish. That was a new personal best as well and beat the existing Passtrak club record by over three metres.

Alisi Ratudradra had the run of her life in the Midget girl’s 300 metres. She placed first out of 19 competitors in 42.85 seconds. That beat her previous best time in the event and also set a new Passtrak club record. The even better news is her time was well under what she had to run to qualify for the Canadian National Championships that take place in Langley August 9 to 11.
