Both Fernie Secondary School and Jaffray Junior School were invited to the Eureka Track Invitational on Thursday, April 19.

Other schools included schools from Montana – Lincoln County School (Eureka) and Troy Secondary School.

 

Notable performances included;

 

Fernie Secondary:

 

Emily Scheller: 100m (1st), 100m hurdles (3rd), Long Jump (3rd)

Lindsay Weech: 800m (1st), 1600m (2nd), 3200m (2nd)

Montana Andreola: Triple Jump (2nd)

Jeff Rayman: Shotput (3rd)

 

Jaffray:

 

Laura Serafini: 400m (1st), High Jump (2nd)

Kayla Serabin: Discus (2nd)

 

Athletes really love competing against the Americans because they are very serious about their track effort. It was our first meet of the season and so we only had been training for three weeks.  We did not have a chance to prepare for many events since there was snow on the track and we practised long jump and triple jump in the gym by jumping into the high jump mats.
