And with a flurry of summer meets, the season comes to an end with the BC Athletics Jamboree held on July 13 – 15th and the Junior Development Championships in Kelowna this year on July 27 – 29! Congratulations to all those athletes who worked so hard through the entire season and special congrats to those who medaled in the Championships. Some notable mentions:
- Ava Jackson for capturing Silver in the 300m for 13 year olds.
- Joe Georgilas for capturing Silver in the 60m, 100m & the Gold for the Long Jump amongst 11 year olds.
- Max Maziotti for capturing the Gold in the Javelin for 10 year olds.
- Shiloh Corrales-Nelson for capturing Bronze in the U18 division for the Hammer Throw.
It’s also worth mentioning that Zone 4 (which includes athletes from Burnaby) had a strong showing at the BC Summer Games this year, held in Cowichan. Many of the Zone 4 athletes went on to represent at the National Legions Track & Field Championships. Tremendous dedication to all who pushed through towards fulfilling their goals. Congratulations and a summer break well deserved.
Indoor practices are set to begin on Tuesday, September 18th at Burnaby South. Please keep checking back at our website over the next several weeks for more information.
