Netzel high jumps to first

Track and field athlete Cameron Netzel was the lone Terrace athlete to attend the Prince Rupert Sub Zero meet May 3

Terrace track and field athlete Cameron Netzel was the lone Terrace athlete to attend the Prince George Sub Zero meet May 3 and he didn’t disappoint.

Netzel was in fine form, winning the specialty high jump with this year’s best time of 175 cm. His attempts to tie the meet record for high jump came just short, but he also won long jump, triple jump, and placed second in javelin.

Netzel travelled with the Prince Rupert team and their coach Dighton Haynes. Haynes used to coach in Terrace before moving to Prince Rupert this year.

Nisga’a Nation Track and Field took a strong contingent to the meet, placing fourth overall out of the 12 teams in attendance.

Nisga’a athlete highlights include a first place finish for James Griffin in 800 m, Seth Williams’ first place finishes in discus 1 kg and javelin, Zane Brown’s first in discus 1.75 kg, Marlyn Morven’s first in 400m, Ashneel Rai’s second in triple jump, Brendan McMillan’s third in discus 1.5 kg, Justin Stuart’s third in triple jump, and Terry Clayton’s third in discus 1 kg
