Three Passtrak athletes travelled to Medicine Hat for a track meet on May 26 and 27 in hopes of being selected to the Zone 1 Sunny South track team that will compete against the rest of Alberta at the 2012 Alberta summer games.

Bad weather prevented the possibility of any outstanding performances but the athletes persevered and all three were selected to the team.

Josh Schulz competed in the youth boys division. He placed first in the shotput with an 8.71m heave and took second in the discus with a 20.13m toss. He triple jumped 10.68m for fourth place and long jumped 4.90m for sixth. He finished off the day with a win in the high jump where he cleared 1.60m. He will be representing his zone in the high jump, shotput and discus.

Madison Gostick took on all three throwing events in the youth girls category. She placed second in the javelin with a distance of 9.26m. She then finished first in both the shotput and discus with performances of 6.41m and 15.82m respectively. So she will be in all three events at the summer games.

Alisi Ratudradra is currently in the bantam girls age group but midget and youth are the two categories that compete at the games. So Alisi moved up to midget in hopes of qualifying for the team. She placed fourth in the 100m, second in the 200m, and first in both the 300m and 200m hurdles. She also won the discus and finished third in both the long jump and shotput. So the gamble paid off. She will be on the team in the 200m, 300m, 200m hurdles and the discus. She will also compete for her team in two relay races.

This year’s version of the Alberta summer games will be hosted by Lethbridge from July 26 to the 29.
