Sir Alexander Mackenzie School hosts successful 2014 Annual Track Meet

What an amazing two days at the annual Track and Field meet hosted by Sir Alexander Mackenzie School.  Students and staff from ACW, BCE, SDA and SAMS participated in the many events.

Highlights included the Bantam Boys, Midget and Youth discus events, Open Women’s javelin, PeeWee Girls shot-put and the Youth and Open Men’s 1500m. We have many up and coming record breakers with the large Tyke and PeeWee age-categories. We closed the second day with the 4×100 m where 80 runners participated.

Parents, volunteers, and staff were out in numbers this year helping time, record and measure; as a result everything ran smoothly. To the coaches, we tip our hats for a job well done!  Thanks to all involved. Don’t miss next year’s meet when our community’s athletes will hit the field again. Thanks again, from the 2014 Track Committee.
