Track & Field Team Makes a Huge Impact at Zones
Holy Redeemer’s Track and Field Team has made some tremendous improvements over the past few years and has seen the team grow and expand so that there are competitors in almost every event. This year’s team surpassed expectations with a tremendous impact at the Zone Championships on May 21st.
Eighteen grade 10 to 12 students participated on the team this year and medaled in an incredible 13 events at Zones. The event took place at Foote Field in Edmonton.
Gold medal winners were Alex Beckmann in the Pentathlon, Justin Breault in the Javelin, and Jordy Robinson in the 200m and 400m. All three students will now be heading to the Provincial Track and Field Championships in Calgary on June 7th and 8th.
This will mark Breault’s third trip to Provincials. He currently holds the provincial record for the Javelin in grade 10 and 11, and is looking to break the grade 12 record in a few weeks time.
The silver medal was awarded to Rudy Clark in the Pentathlon, Ben Rogers in the 1500m and 3000m, Ava Simmons, Alexis Deleeuw, Cassie Muldoon, and Alex Beckman in the 4x100m Relay, and Liam Smith, Jordy Robinson, Carl Deleeuw, and Cody Pape in the 4x100m Relay. These athletes will also be heading to Provincials to represent HRH.
“It is amazing that we are sending athletes to compete at the provincial level in nine events,” says Head Coach Brian Davison. “It speaks volumes of the amount of time they spent in preparation for Zones and their commitment to their sports. I look forward to seeing how they will perform in Calgary in a few weeks.”
Bronze medal winners were Jacob Germann in the 100m and 200m, Max Austman in the 1500m, and Logan Simmons in the Long Jump.
Overall, it was a very successful day for the Track and Field team. HRH now cheers on the provincial bound athletes as they prepare for Provincials.
