Aug 10 2017 - Team NB to compete at Legion National Championship

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, our best midget and youth athletes are set to square off against the top talent in the country at the 2017 Royal Canadian Legion Youth Track and Field Championship, which will take place August 11th-13th in Brandon, Manitoba.

 

42 athletes aged 14-17 will have the opportunity to represent team NB to the best of their abilities. Here are a few athletes to keep an eye on at this year’s championship.

 

Jordan Henri of Moncton comes into the competition ranked 5th in the youth boys 100m in 11.02. The ASEA athlete is the midget and youth 200m New Brunswick record holder. He is ranked sixth in this event, having run 22.05 this year.

 

His club teammate, Shelby MacIsaac, will be featured in multiple events. Already the owner of 4 New Brunswick records, the midget-aged MacIsaac will compete in the 100m and 200m where she is ranked 8th and 5th, respectively. She will also compete in the high jump.

 

Lexie Shannon of Fredericton will fly the colours of Team NB in the youth girls’ triple jump. She has attained a distance of 11.43 this year, and is seeded 4th.

 

Also from Fredericton, Danielle Keefe, will test her fitness against a fast 1200m field. Her time of 3:48.43 seeds her 5th in the midget girls competition. She will later compete in the 2000m.

 

Erin Vringer will also be present in the midget girls 2000m race. The young runner from Saint John will be in the hunt for a medal, having run 6:38.53. She is ranked in 3rd heading into the championship.

 

Finally, Craig Thorne of Quispamsis, the New Brunswick Youth Boys record holder in the 110m hurdles, is ranked 5th in the competition, thanks to a time of 14.76.

 

“2017 is seen as a bit of a rebuilding year for Athletics New Brunswick, as many of our athletes are in their first year in midget and youth categories. We do, however, have gamers on this team who will show up to compete with the best, no matter their seed,” said Gabriel LeBlanc, ANB technical director. “We would like to thank the Royal Canadian Legion for their continued support, and for the opportunity they provide emerging athletes year in and year out.”
