Four track and fielders off to B.C. Summer Games

Peninsula Track and Field Club members selected for B.C. Summer Games zone 6 team

The Garriock Track and Field Meet in Duncan proved the one that gave four athletes from the Pen Track Club the thing they had been working hard for all season – a place on the zone 6 team going to the B.C. Summer Games in August.

Kaelen Smith, 15, won the 100m hurdles event and came second in the high jump, clearing 1.55m  and placing him on the team in both events.  Michael Giles, who was second to Smith in hurdles, landed on the team in that event, while Jacqueline Gaby finds herself in the 1500m race walk and 1500m steeplechase at the Games. Joining her in the 1500m steeplechase is Amelia Casciola.
