The club had 15 registered athletes this past year and participated in a total of 31 competitions during the year. The track and field meets took Passtrak athletes across most of Alberta and parts of British Columbia.

This year Passtrak athletes accumulated a whopping 134 medals in their 31 competitions. No fewer than 55 gold, 38 silver and 41 bronze. These athletes also set 62 new Passtrak club records during the year. Thirty records were set during the club’s indoor season and 32 were new outdoor club records.

Nine of the club’s registered athletes, Mosese Ratudradra, Zion Ratudradra, Alisi Ratudradra, Janaya White, Dustin White, Madison Gostick, Noah Schuh, Cameo Hanlon and Josh Schulz participated in a Provincial Championship competition at some point during the year. They brought home 9 gold, three silver and four bronze Provincial Championship medals. Alisi earned the title of Alberta’s best all round Bantam age female athlete for both the indoor and outdoor seasons.

Four Passtrak athletes, Alisi, Cameo, Madison and Josh, qualified for the 2012 Alberta Summer games. They competed in a total of 17 events and Josh picked up a bronze medal in the Youth Boys high jump.

At the end of the outdoor season, seven of Passtrak’s athletes were ranked in the top 10 in Alberta in 29 separate events. Two of our Peewee athletes had top 10 rankings. Mosese Ratudradra is ranked fourth in the discus and Noah Schuh is ranked in the top 10 in Alberta in six events with his highest being fifth in the 1,000 metres. Passtrak has two Bantam athletes in the top 10 rankings. Zion Ratudradra is ranked fifth in the 200 metre hurdles and seventh in the 80 metre hurdles. Alisi Ratudradra is ranked in the top 10 in 10 separate events. She has three number ones in the 300 metres, 200 metre hurdles and long jump, along with three number twos in the 80 metre hurdles, shotput and discus. Cameo Hanlon hit the Midget Girls rankings in three events with a ninth in javelin and 10th in both the high jump and triple jump. Both of Passtrak’s youth athletes made the ranking list. Madison Gostick was seventh in discus and ninth in javelin.  Josh Schulz earned five top ten rankings with his highest ones being seventh in javelin and number two in high jump.
