Saugeen Track and Field Club again proves its mettle against provincial top talent

Saugeen Track and Field Club has once again proven its mettle against the top talent in the province. STFC athletes won 8 medals and had several personal best performances at the Athletics Ontario U16 and U18 Track and Field Championships held at T.D. Waterhouse Stadium in London over the weekend.

A small contingent of seven STFC U18 girls scored enough points to place STFC as the 6th best club in the province in the U18 Division. The U18 Division had 49 clubs competing and combined both Boys and Girls totals.

                         Jasmine Broere (Gold, Silver) and                                                      Michelle van Styvenberg ( 2 Silvers)

Multiple medal winners were Brooklyn Quanz, Jasmine Broere, Michelle van Stuyvenberg and Kara Tichbourne.

Brooklyn Quanz’s 3000m run of 9:51.43 was not only golden but also moved her into the number 5 ranking in Canada in that event. Also ranked nationally are Jasmine Broere, 6th in Discus and 7th in Shot Put and Michelle van Stuyvenberg, 7th in both Hammer and Discus.
