There were personal bests and quality results across the board for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows athletes at last week’s Fraser Valley High School Track and Field championships.
More than a dozen students qualified for the provincial championships at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park on from June 1 to 3. After the dust settled, Maple Ridge secondary’s Mateya Haintz won an individual aggregate award, winning the junior girls hammer throw and discus throw while finishing third in shot put.
Maple Ridge Secondary’s Ken Elphick said he thought the MRSS team performed pretty close to the expectations he had for the team going in. They had strong performances both individually and as a group in the relay races.
