There were several notable perfromances from Kelowna athletes this past weekend at the 25th annual Jack Brow Track Meet held at the Apple Bowl Saturday and Sunday.

Kelowna Secondary School graduate Scot Nichol in the 3000 metre (made Canada Games standard), and John Hawkins, who placed 9th for Canada in the 1972 Olympics in Munich (2.18m), set a Canadian Masters record of 1.60m for 60+ high jump.

Jumping in the juvenile category, Django Lovett from Abbotsford’s Valley Royals won with a personal best of 2.16m, which would have won him a silver medal at this weekend’s Canadian Championships. In the the 1500m race Edmonton’s Cole Peterson, 16, won the Junior Men’s 1500m in a Legion National Juvenile Championship qualifying time of 4:00.14. Peterson also won the Juvenile Men’s 800m in a time of 1:57.29.

Ex-Kelownian Cliff Childs, running for the University of Victoria, took two silver medals in the Open Men’s 800m (1:55.52) and 1500m (4:00.64). The Kelowna Track and Field Club’s Ethan Rutley placed second in the Junior Men’s 100m (11.18), third in the Junior Men’s 200m (22.67), and second in the Junior Men’s 400m (50.03).

KTFC’s Keefer Joyce placed first in the 15-yr-old 100m (11.74), and second in the 15-yr-old 200m (23.64). KTFC’s Erin Kokayko (16) had strong showings in the sprints, to match her impressive 5.14m win in the Juvenile Women’s long jump.

The most outstanding KTFC athlete of the meet was Elisa Joyce, who won the 14-year-old girl’s 100m (12.87), 200m (25.96), and 400m (57.82). Elisa’s 400m time is the fourth fastest on record for a 14-year-old British Columbian girl.

KTFC multi-event athletes Aaron Stroda (14 years old) and Keely Watts-Watling (13 years old) claimed a total of 13 medals over the two-day event.

    Georgia Ellenwood, 14 year old girl from Langley, set two provincial records within one hour on Sunday at the Jack Brow – 300 meter hurdles (45.22, best time on record for a 14 year old girl in BC) followed by the high jump (1.73 which is the highest jump on record for a 14 year old BC girl and which meets the World Youth Championships qualifying standard for the Canadian team). Probably should have been noted somewhere maybe.
