Nelson’s Sara Wade leading the 800 metre race in Eugene

Nelson track athletes jump to next level

The Kootenay Chaos Track Club was busy again earlier this month

The Kootenay Chaos Track Club was busy again earlier this month with athletes attending both the Track City Classic in Eugene, Oregon and the BC Provincial Age Class Championships in Nanaimo.

Sarah Wade ran two very good races in Eugene against top high school competitors from Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and California. She finished sixth in the girls 1,500 metre and had third place wrapped up in the 800 metre, before stumbling just before the finish line, and finally finishing in seventh place.

Out on the coast in Nanaimo, Matti Erickson once again proved to be a force to reckoned with in the province by winning five individual events against the best 10-year-olds in the province. He came home with gold medals in the 60m, 60m hurdles, 600m, discus and long jump.
