Strong showing from local athletes at ASAA Track and Field Provincials

Lakeland area athletes competed on the provincial stage last weekend, some even returning with hardware.

ASAA Track and Field Provincials were held in Medicine Hat last Friday and Saturday.

Notre Dame High School student Jordan Skarsen won the gold medal in pole vaulting soaring 2.55 metres. Cold Lake High School student Ava Pinch in the javelin even threw 31.56m for a silver medal performance.

Isla Rose Hensen took home multiple medals in the jumping events. She earned a silver and bronze in long jump and triple jump, respectively. 

Continuing the success in pole vault was BCHS’ Sabrina Pricope, who won bronze, and edged out Madison Gamblin from Glendon on the podium. 

St. Paul Regional’s Zachary Quinton won bronze in the long jump with a 5.62 metre hop that was two centimetres better than 4th place. 

Also from Regional, Dalin Fejzullai won bronze in the shot put with a 12.34m throw and wasn’t far off the two ahead of him.

Seth Jackson from Ashmont School also won bronze in the junior javelin throw. 

In the open for intellectual disabilities, Shawn Lysons won three gold medals in the 100m, 200m, and shot put.

Boys relay teams also hand medal success, with a silver medal coming 4×100 metre junior and bronze in the intermediate for athletes representing the northeast zone. 

In the boys Heptathlon Banner Unified, Kyle Lobb and Landon Fallscheer won gold and bronze.
