Quartet to track nationals

Langley track and field representatives to the Hershey’s Track and Field Games North American Final

Langley will be sending four young track and field representatives to the Hershey’s Track and Field Games North American Final on August 4.

Hannah Morrison, Megan Shane, Megan Champoux and Caroline Gillespie have qualified for the top spot in their region for the 4 X 100 metre relay. The region includes Alaska, Yukon, North West Territories, B.C., Alberta, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.

It is the first time these four Langley 13-year-olds have competed at this event. However, for Megan Champoux this is turning out to be a landmark summer, as she won gold and silver medals in equine events at the B.C. Summer Games in Surrey last month.

The qualifying track competition was held in May at Macleod Athletic Park through the Langley Mustangs track and field club.

Hershey’s Chocolates sponsors the finals, which hosts over 400 of the top young track and field athletes on the continent. The finals are held on the Henry Hershey Field on the campus of the Milton Hershey School.

This will be the 35th annual Hershey Finals, an event that provides athletes aged nine to 14 the opportunity to learn and develop the skills required to compete in track and field.

The Langley team is being flown to Hershey, Pennsylvania for the finals. They fly out with six other B.C. athletes on August 1.
