Comets heat up in Kamloops

Seever Rondquist and Tekarra Reierson both won bronze medals for the Campbell River track and field club

Under the heat of 40-degree temperatures, five Campbell River Comets competed in the BC Championship Jamboree in Kamloops, July 11-13.

Heat was definitely and issue as some longer distance track events were postponed until the evenings when things cooled off.

Seever Rondquist (16-17 boys) pulled off an impressive performance in javelin by winning the bronze medal and was fourth in shot put.

Marcus Savery (16-17 boys) placed sixth in 110m hurdles, ninth in 300m hurdles and 18th in 100m dash.

Tekarra Reierson (14-15 girls) won the bronze medal in the 300m run, placed fifth in the 200m hurdles and was 10th in the 80m hurdles.

Alice Rondquist (14-15 girls) placed eighth in both shot put and hammer throw, where she exceeded her distance with each throw to a new personal best.

Madison Ashcroft (16-17 girls) was fourth in javelin and set a new personal best.

On the back of these impressive performances, three midget-aged (14-15 year olds) Comets qualified for this weekend’s B.C. Summer Games in Nanaimo.

Tekarra Reierson, a fourth-year Comet, will run the 300m. She converted from long-distance runner and pulled off a third place finish at the provincials in the 300.

Mairin Sheilds-Brown really took off this season and will compete in long jump while first-year Comet Alice Rondquist will throw the shot and hammer.
