Royals JDs Finish On A High Note      

            The Valley Royals Junior Development team competed at their Championships this past weekend with spectacular results. Numerous personal bests were attained, as well as a slew of ribbons, multiple medals, and a number of Provincial Championships in a variety of disciplines. Everyone worked hard to put forth their best efforts for their ultimate seasonal tests, and all the coaches were made proud by these exertions.               Multiple ribbons went to Parker Janzen, Maguire Wakelyn, Landon Waklyn, Arshdeep Waring, Olivia McAuley, Cassidy Hutchison, Nathan Hauserman, and Aaron Boschman.           

  Our medalists were:                  Allie Hutchison-Bronze in the 600m                                                      Josh Carsience–Bronze in the 1200m                                                       Tanisha Gill——-Silver in 800mRW    

Our Provincial Champions were:
 Gurshaan Gill——-Gold in 800mRW ( 4th-1000m, 7th-600m )
Megin Turi———Gold in 100m ( Silver-600m )  
Rachel Mortimer–Gold in 2000m, Gold in 1200m    
Parker Wakelyn—–Gold in 200mh,Gold in TJ, ( Silver-80mh, Bronze-LJ, 4th-300m )   
          Of our Provincial Champions, it should be noted that both Parker and Rachel were dominant in their winning performances, while Megin  had to work furiously to out-lean her closest rival. Gurshaan was trying something completely new, and became Champion in his first race.       But whether a dominant force , a newcomer, or a mid-packer, all of our Valley Royals athletes excelled by putting themselves on the line, and competing against both their peers and the clock. Much respect is given to everyone who came out and stretched themselves both physically and mentally. You’re better for it, and we’re better for having witnessed it.
