Cheetahs win 10 provincial titles at BC Track and Field Championships

The Coquitlam Cheetahs Track and Field Club ran, jumped and threw their way to 10 provincial titles at the BC Track and Field Championships which took place in Kamloops from July 8-10. The Cheetahs were led by Nathan George, the Canadian Champion in the 400m run, who stepped down in distance to win the BC title in the 200m.


Twins Makenna and Delaney Self raced to two wins each in the U16 age category and were named to the BC team which will be competing in the Canadian Legion Track and Field Championships in Sherbrooke, Quebec from August 6-8. Makenna completed the sprint double by winning both the 100m and 200m and Delaney swept the hurdle events by winning the 80m hurdles and the 300m hurdles. Delaney also added a silver medal in the high jump.


Also securing spots on the BC team were Calib Gruninger who won the U18 100m and was second in the 200m and Marty Bajarunas who was victorious in the U18 javelin and was third in the high jump. Other Cheetahs provincial champions included Liepa Bajarunas who followed her brother's victory in the javelin with a win in the women's U20 event, and Devon Meadows who led start to finish to win the U20 800m.

Cheetahs Excel Under Windy Conditions

A group of 25 athletes traveled to the SFU campus to compete in the Emily Mondor Invitational Track and Field Meet on Saturday, April 9. Extreme headwinds meant personal best times were unlikely but Cheetah athletes continued to excel in early season performances.

Nathan George lead the way with a win in the 400m in a season best time of 46.81. Josh Adhemar also ran to victory in the 400m hurdles, opening the season in 53.83, his second best time ever.

Jaeland Cummings led the Cheetah surge in the women's 100m with a 2nd place run. Cheetahs finished with five athletes in the top nine of the women's 100m.

The brother and sister team of Liepa and Marty Bajarunas both threw personal best distances in the javelin events which were contested at Percy Perry Stadium.
