Here’s Skeena Middle School’s Tyler Dozzi who was at provincials last weekend.

Track athletes at provincials

Three Terrace high school track and field athletes are heading to provincials in Langley May 31

Three Terrace high school track and field athletes are heading to provincials in Langley May 31 after qualifying at zones in Smithers earlier this month.

The Grade 8 girls and boys from Skeena Middle School (SMS) won the Northwest banner at the zones track meet in Smithers May 17 and 18, led by Tyler Dozzi winning seven events and setting two meet records in the 1500 m steeple chase and 300 m hurdles.

Tanesha Davis won her shot put and 100 m. Both Davis and Dozzi qualified for the provincials, Davis in shot put and Dozzi in the 3000 m.

Dozzi won outstanding Grade 8 boy athlete, and outstanding performance with his steeple chase victory. Davis won the outstanding performance by a Grade 8 girl in shot put.

Other notable Grade 8 athletes are Amber Schulte, winning javelin and discus, and Joey Parkes, taking 3 seconds in 400 m, 800 m and 1500 m.

Shivohn Peters, MJ Wraight and Keith Buell also did very well in the throwing events winning more than enough points, 105, to win the Grade 8 banner. Nisga’a Elementary Secondary School placed second with 66 points.

Grade 9 Hannah Jay also represented SMS Jay broke the senior girls record in the 200 m, but not the junior record in which she was competing. In long jump, Jay just missed the record of 4.79, jumping 4.72. But she finally did set a record in the 100 m, 12.59 in the heats, and won the final easily.

Jay will be going to provincials in Langley with Dozzi on May 31 and June 1 to compete in all three events. Her times in the 100 m and 200 m are the fastest times this year in the province. Jay also won the outstanding junior girl athlete and outstanding performance in the 200 m.

And Caledonia Secondary School sent six athletes to the zones. Summer Schulte won javelin and discus, qualifying in both for the provincials. Like Davis, Schulte will pass on participating in provincials this year.

Cameron Netzel got off his crutches earlier in the week to compete in high jump and javelin, both events he has represented the zone in at past provincials. Not being able to transfer his weight onto his left ankle, he place third in javelin.

But Netzel did win the high jump clearing 170 cm off his wrong foot. With that jump, Netzel won the outstanding senior boy performance with his effort in high jump and will compete at provincials, too.

Brad Brown and Kenan Kinney competed in the senior boys division with Isabella Lewis and Tea Archibald competing in the junior girls. Archibald was third to Hannah Jay in the 100 m final.
