Great Performances at Recent Meets

BC Regional Challenge (July 14 & 17)

The Valley Royals represented themselves in a fine manner this past weekend in the BC Regional Challenge at Jane and Gerry Swan Track. Our young athletes were outstanding, with many showing themselves to be some of the best in the Fraser Valley. Lexi Smith and Adrianna Buitelaar finished one and two in the U14 girls 800m with virtually identical times. Evan Booth jumped a huge personal best of 1.50m in the U14 boys high jump to tie the winning competitor in height, and Damian Brown won the U12 boys discus. Many of our athletes turned in top 3 performances and virtually every one of our young athletes turned in performances to be proud of.

Our club did a first-class job in hosting the meet, and a big thank you goes out to all our volunteers and officials who donated their time to run a great event for all our young participants. Make sure to check out the results to see how your young competitors did, and a big congratulations to all of our club members who participated. Well done.
