Track athletes shine

The Trail Track and Field Club foursome brought home a total of nine medals and a number of top-10 finishes.

Four young Trail Track and Field Club athletes excelled at the Kamloops’ Track and Field Club’s Centennial Meet last week.

With about 300 athletes ages 9-82 competing, the Trail Track and Field Club foursome brought home a total of nine medals and a number of top-10 finishes.

Results: Sadie Joyce led the way capturing four gold medals in the 11-year-old girls 60-metre and 100-m sprints, high jump and long jump. Sadie is ranked second in the province in long jump and high jump.

Warfield’s Jendaya Shields was also golden, winning the girls’ 11-year-old javelin and discus, and claiming second spot in the shot put and 60-m hurdles. Provincially, Jendaya ranks third in the discus and fifth in the javelin.

Maya Amantea brought home a bronze medal in the 60-m sprint, fourth place in 100-m and 60-m hurdles, as well as sixth in long jump, all in the 11-year-old girls category.

Jordan Amantea put in a lot of heart in a strongly competitive field and came away with a fifth place ribbon in long jump in the 14-15 year old girls category, and an eighth in javelin.
