The Morinville Community High School Track & Field Team took home the zone banner May 22 after a day of competition in 28-degree weather at Edmonton’s Foote Field.
“The Morinville Community High School Track & Field Team was able to follow in the footsteps of the school’s Senior Boys Volleyball team, the JV Girls Volleyball team, the Senior Boys and Senior Girls Basketball teams along with the JV Girls and Grade 9 Boys Basketball teams, the Senior Boys Curling Team and the MCHS Cheer Team to bring another Zone Championship Banner back to hang in the rafters of the Morinville Community High School gym,” said Coach Terry Maslyk. “This brings the total number of Zone Championship Banners won by MCHS Athletic Teams this year to nine.”
Maslyk said the Wolves finished in convincing style with 376 points, wel ahead of second-place Barrhead Composite, who had 258, and third place Edwin Parr from Athabasca, who ended with 121 points.
Thirty-five athletes competed for MCHS, running, jumping and throwing their way to 39 Medals. Thirteen of that number were gold, 14 silver, and a dozen bronze.
Maslyk said the NCZone Track & Field meet is a provincial qualifying meet with the top two finishers in each event qualifying for the 2018 Provincial Track & Field Championships in Red Deer June 1 and 2.
Sixteen Wolves qualified for provincials.
