Ryan Goudron, Jackson Schiebler and Katelyn Stewart-Barnett got their summer vacations off to a great start, stacking up three gold medal finishes each at the Trevor Craven Memorial Track and Field meet this past week in Burnaby.
The three Royal City Track and Field Club athletes led a strong contingent from New West to the Norwester Club meet. Goudron won three events in the boys 14-15 age division: the 300-metre dash, the 2000m race and the 1500m steeplechase.
For Schiebler, the victories in the 60- and 100m dash and 600m race came in the 10-year-old competition, while Stewart-Barnett topped the girls 14-15 age group’s 1500m steeplechase, the 2000m distance run and high jump. She also picked up silver in the 1200m race.
Collecting a pair of gold medals was 10-year-old Talia Phangura, in shotput and discus.
Multiple medalists included Ava Forsyth, who in the girls 10 division topped the 1000m and placed second in 600m, Ellie Yong, with a gold in 60m hurdles and bronze in high jump, while other first-place finishers were Emma Dolman, coming first in 14-15 girls 400m hurdles, Ella Foster, topping girls 15 pole vault, Mia Gracia, in division 9 girls 600m, and Lindsay Goudron, in girls 13 discus.
