Jack Simpson Open Track Meet

A rare Sunday only competition was hosted by the University of Calgary on January 26.

Six Passtrak athletes took advantage of the opportunity to produce some high quality results.

Keely Anderson took part in her first official track meet in the 10 and under girls age group.  She finished in 11th place in the 60 metres in 12.29 seconds, and then moved up to fifth place in the 150 metres with a time of 34.13 seconds.  Her third event was the 1000 metres where she finished in fifth spot by running 5:26.15 which set a new Passtrak club record for her age group.

Mosese Ratudradra had three events as well.  He competed in the 11 year old boy’s category.  He placed fifth in the 60 metres in 11.12 seconds and sixth in the 150 metres in 30.98 seconds.  He then chopped a full five seconds off his previous best in the 1000 metres by finishing in 4:57.08 for a well earned third place.

Tim Jorgensen had two events in the 12 year old boys group.  He took eighth spot in the 60 metres by running 9.71 seconds and ninth in the 150 metres in 25.01 seconds.

Ty Anderson competed in the 12 year old boys group as well.  This was his initiation to track and field competition so he set personal best performances which he will attempt to surpass in future meets.  He ran 11.03 seconds in the 60 metres for 12th and 28.72 seconds in the 150 metres for 10th place.  In his third event, the 1000 metres, he placed ninth in 5:25.29.

Alisi Ratudradra contested two races in the 15 year old girls division.  She ran the 60 metres in 8.53 seconds for third place and 44.67 seconds in the 300 metres for second place.

Tate Kenny competed in the Open men’s age group.  He ran 8.45 seconds in the 60 metres for ninth and 46.10 seconds in the 300 metres for 17th.
