Off to Brandon

There is nothing better than seeing your athletes reach their goals and this weekend was magical!

Our team went to Brandon and came home as superstars. In every event that our JD athletes contested our Legion 10 gave it their all.  To see Ally set multiple personal bests on her way to the 200mH finals, to Huw setting a personal best in all 3 of his distance events, Jordan fighting hard in the 100m and 200m, Sadie producing a smooth race after a short break, Matthew WINNING his section of the Steeplechase and running like I knew he could and deep down he knew as well, to Emiley setting a personal best in both the Long Jump and High Jump. The reward of seeing Kya run a great hurdles race after her hard fought battle to earn her spot at Nationals, Elizabeth in the 300m and Evan in the 1500m Steeplechase showing such determination in their races and the sheer joy (and tears…happy ones) after Ella’s 300m race summed up the pride and joy all of us coaches have felt about this team.

You guys are awesome!

To see that we have 10 Caltaf JD athletes in the Top 20 in CANADA is so exciting. Congratulations on a fantastic season!
