MORTIMER AND LAMBERT ESTABLISH RECORDS AT HARRY JEROME INDOOR MEET

Rachel Mortimer and Michael Lambert established records last Saturday at the Harry Jerome Indoor Games held at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Mortimer won the midget women’s 1,200 (3:56.54) meters and in the process shaved four seconds off the previous record established in 2014 by her VR teammate Kate Sokolowski.  Mortimer set a blistering early pace that saw her open up a 50-meter lead but with 200 meters to go the Valley Royals athlete had to fight hard to hold off a fast closing field.  Mortimer’s performance earned her selection as the meets outstanding midget women’s performer and was presented with a wristwatch for her accomplishment.

Michael Lambert was also a record setter at the meet as the 17-year old won the Youth Division High Jump with a leap of 1.95 meters.  Lambert’s winning jump easily eclipsed the former record of 1.80 meters established in 2013 and gave notice that this multi event athlete will be a threat in a number of events come the outdoor season.

One of the tightest races of the meet saw Tanner Geary place second in the junior men’s 1500 meters (4:16.63) with team teammate Kristian Biela in fourth (4:15.72).  These were a good performances for the two club athletes as they have had very little experience at indoor competition.
