Sub Zero track meet hosts Vanderhoof athletes

Track meet in Prince George, Vanderhoof brings home gold

A zone track-and-field meet in Prince George May 2 saw students from Nechako Valley Secondary compete in a variety of events.

The sun was shining at Masich Stadium as 12 schools took part in 100m-600m dashes, 800m – 1,200m runs, 80m hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, shot put, discus throw and javelin throw. NVSS left the stadium with four first place winners and four second place winners. Alexander Nemethy placed 1 boys 18-19 800 m and 1,500m races. Kyler Boucher came second in 1,200m and the 800m races. Emma Floris placed first in girls 16-17 long jump and 100m dash. Coleson Jansen placed second in boys 14-15 100m and 300m dash. Elliott Tone placed second in 800m run. Justin Van Andel placed second for boys 14-15 high jump. Gabriel McLain placed first in boys 13 discus throw 1kg and third in javelin throw 500g. Hunter Floris placed first in boys 14-15 discus throw 1 kg and first in javelin throw 600g.

The zone championship will be held May 22 and 23 in Prince George.

The top two from each race at that event will go to high school provincials in Langley June 4 to 6.

“We are hoping for eight students to qualify for Provincials in June in Langley,” Brian Nemethy said, NVSS T&F coach. “There are 27 on the team this year. Emma Floris is a 100m specialist, Alex Nemethy a 3,000m and Steeplechase specialist, Hunter Floris a shot put and javelin specialist, Matthew Ebert a discus specialist, and Simon Nemethy and Kyler Boucher are 800m and 1,500m specialists.  These students are getting better each week and will qualify for Provincials.  Hopefully others from the team will also meet the qualifications of placing in the top two.”
