Track athletes set school records

The Pugwash District High School track and field team left the NSSAF Track and Field Championships empty-handed as far as accolades go, but they didn't leave without personal satisfaction.

Taylor White finished fifth in Nova Scotia in junior girls' high jump and set a school record at all levels with a 145-cm jump. She's only in grade eight.

The senior boys' 4x400-metre relay team, comprised of Anthony Reeves, Mike Blaikie, Jarred Nix, and Luke Froebe set a new school record with a time of 3:54:46, breaking their own record set at regionals.

Vicki Brumwell also finished 10th in the province in intermediate girls' 80-metre hurdles.

The athletes didn't receive medals or the division IV championship banner, but coach Jeff Lewis was very happy with his team's performance.

"I'm very proud of them and I know they're very proud and excited too to have set personal records," he said. "Very happy with the way the kids went down and composed themselves and did their events and did well.

"When you're setting personal bests and setting school records, that's pretty successful I think."
