Submitted by Neal Currie-The Queen Charlotte Secondary Track and Field team won its second meet of the season in Rupert May 10. Despite being the smallest school (by quite a lot), our athletes beat the teams from Mount Elizabeth (Kitimat), Charles Hays, Prince Rupert Secondary, and Hazelton Secondary.In track and field, points are awarded to the first four finishers in each event, and the total number of points earned by the team members determines the team’s placing.The thirteen athletes who competed won a total of 26 first-place, 17 second-place, and 5 third-place ribbons including relays. There were 11 school records set at this meet by Lara Kunz, Brionne Lavoie, Jamie Mould, Jessica Reid, Shawna Williams, and Billy Yovanovich.Many team members had very successful days. Jessica Reid had a strong performance in Senior Girls, winning three events and earning one second, in addition to running the anchor leg of the winning Senior Girls 4x100m team. Billy Yovanovich won two Senior Boys events, and had two very close second place finishes. Ayla Pearson helped our senior girls 4x100m relay team win the race, despite pulling a hamstring, which forced her to jog part of the race.
