Mason Opens Season in Rain & Cold

The weather was just what you might expect Saturday afternoon at UBC’s Dhillon
Track (wet and cold) but in spite of the inhospitable climate, Mike Mason won the 
high jump event with a height of 2.24 meters. It was a good warm-up event for 
Mason who in two weeks will travel to Los Angles for the Mt. Sac Relays. 

In addition, three other Valley Royal athletes took part in the UBC meet. Hannah  Konrad won the “B” section of the 400 meters (1:00.45), Helen Crofts placed first in the women’s 1500 meters (4:24.93) and Spencer Spenst had a 1.70 meter performance in the high jump.

Meanwhile at the Stanford University meet, Oliver Jorgensen got his outdoor season off to a good start by recording a 4:19.11 performance in the mile, a time that is a provincial qualifying mark for the conference meet.
