Campbell River Comets bring home medals from BCJD Provincial Championships

Four Campbell River Comets travelled to Surrey and White Rock and competed at the annual BC JD Track and Field Provincial Championships this past weekend.

Competing against 475 top athletes aged 9 to 13 from throughout the province, the foursome all earned medals in their respective age groupings. All the hard training and perseverance paid off for the foursome as they represented their home town track club.

Leading the way were the brother-sister duo of Ryan and Kaylie Lofstrom who collectively brought home eight medals between the two combined. They were followed closely by the Hoffman sisters, Victoria and Elisabeth, who took home four medals combined. To cap off a spectacular weekend, Victoria Hoffman’s Gold in Javelin also qualifies for provincial standard.
