Feb 12 2018 - New Brunswick cleans up at National Indoor Championships

The Canadian Indoor Track & Field Championships took place this past weekend at the Complexe sportif Claude-Robillard in Montreal. Each year Athletics New Brunswick sends a team to the event, this year sending 37 of our province's top age-class athletes. The team captured 17 medals (6 gold, 9 silver, 2 bronze), 11provincial records, and a number of personal best performances.

Medalists for New Brunswick include:

- Shelby MacIsaac of Riverview (ASEA) won silver in both the midget girl's 60m (8.12) and youth girl's 400m (58.02), and gold in the youth girl's 200m (25.52). Shelby's 200m time is a provincial record in both the midget and youth categories, while her 400m time is a record in the midget, youth, and junior categories.

- Erin Vringer of Saint John (SJTC) won gold in both the youth girl's 1500m and 3000m with times of 4:45.36 and 10:28.62, respectively.

- Sophie Black of Dieppe (ASEA) won gold in the junior women's pentathlon with a score of 2904.

- Marie-Pier Cloutier of Saint John (SJTC) won silver in the junior women's 60m hurdles with a time of 9.42.

- Kyla Hughes of Cocagne (ASEA) won silver in the junior women's shot put with a best attempt of 12.37m, breaking the 28 year old provincial record. Kyla's throw also bettered the former championship record, which was then claimed by the gold medalist who threw a best of 13.66m.

- Joelle Leger of Dieppe (ASEA) won bronze in the junior women's 200m with a time of 27.86.

- The New Brunswick junior girl's relay team captured silver in the 4x200m with a time of 1:49.51, narrowly missing the provincial record set at the same event last year. The team was comprised of Marie-Pier Cloutier, Robyn Davis, Joelle Leger, and Caroline Gagnon.

- Jordan Henri of Moncton (ASEA) won gold in both the youth boy's 60m and 200m, finishing with time of 6.87 and 22.06, respectively. Both of Jordan's performances came with a number of additional records and rankings: his 60m time is a provincial youth record, his 200m time is a provincial youth and junior record, and both performances bettered the championship records. Not only is Jordan ranked 1st in the country among youth and junior athletes in both events, but his 60m time ranks him 7th in the world among youth athletes, while his 200m time ranks him 20th.

- Michael Mitton of Rexton (ASEA) won silver in the junior men's pentathlon with a score of 2413.

- Craig Thorne of Saint John (SJTC) won silver in the youth boy's 60mh with a provincial record time of 8.21. Craig's time was just 0.006 behind the gold medalist.

- The ASEA Youth Boy's relay team captured silver in the 4x200m with a time of 1:44.14. The team was comprised of Owen Enstrom, Tristan Morneault, Max Mazerolle, and Austin Wamboldt.
 

-New Brunswick Junior 4x200m captured a Silver medal with a blistering time of 1:33.09. This establishes a new provincial record. The team was comprised of Kenneth McGovern, Craig Thorne, Mykyle Welsh and Jordan Henri.
