It was an excellent two-day trip for Fort St. John track and fielders at the North Central Zones in Quesnel.
“We had a really great showing from our middle school kids and are really excited,” said Jen Harrison, vice principal at Bert Bowes and track team coach.
Four middle school athletes went, with Elanor Copes and Kane Schreiner turning in stellar performances. Copes, from Clearview School, was first in the long jump and 400m, and second in the 100m and 200m. Kane Schreiner, of Bert Bowes, won all four of his events - the long jump, 100m, 200m and 800m races.
The two, along with Megan Stobbe and Patrick Nyomwunge, are awaiting to see if they will qualify for provincials in Langley, May 31 to June 2.
In the senior category, athletes from NPSS were the talk of the meet, beating all schools with 202 points.
Kenzie Chilcott is going to provincials in the 1500m and 800m races, one of NPSS students qualifying.
Chad Singh and Jace Wieler owned the competition, finishing first and second in the 100m and 200m races, as well as winning the 4 x 100m relay alongside Aiden Craig-Steele and Connor Chapple.
Craig Steele had a strong meet, winning the 800m and 2,000m steeplechase, and finishing third in the 400m.
