Mar 24 2019 - Local businesses continue to show support

NB athletes, coaches and supporters of athletics have a few reasons to be happy. Last Wednesday, an important announcement was made at the Université de Moncton. Following a 1-million-dollar contribution by Medavie Blue Cross to UdeM's financial campaign "Évolution", the stadium located on the Moncton university's campus has been renamed to Stade Croix Bleue Medavie Stadium. Local clubs regularly train at this premiere facility, and multiple competitions are held in the stadium every Summer, including the upcoming 2019 Subway Atlantic T&F Championships on July 13-14. Medavie Blue Cross's $1M donation will be going towards scholarships to support student-athletes in health programs at the university.

In other exciting news, construction of the Saint John Field House is still going strong, and the project continues to receive support from partners. The latest donation comes from New Brunswick Children's Foundation for $150,000. Check out the facility's Facebook page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/FieldhouseSJ/

"New Brunswick is blessed to have so many generous businesses, organizations and individuals who continue to support athletics programs and facilities with their donations” highlighted Athletics New Brunswick’s Executive Director, Stephanie Doiron. “The latest renaming of the Stade Croix Bleue Medavie Stadium is one example of a local business helping to make a difference in the lives of NB athletes. To Medavie Blue Cross and to all other donors, we say 'Thank you'."

Mar 18 2019 - Henri, Vringer and Bourque take top spots and set records at Hershey Canada 2019 Athletics Canada Indoor Championships

Jordan Henri was unstoppable as he clinched not only one title, but two with incredible ease at this weekend’s Athletics Canada Indoor Championships that were held at the Complexe Sportif Claude-Robillard in Montreal. Henri, of Moncton was New Brunswick’s top performer with a Gold medal in the 200m Saturday in a time of 22.34, which was also a new Championship record. If you think that’s impressive, Henri returned to the track Sunday morning in the 60m preliminary rounds and cruised to win his heat, qualifying for the final later in the afternoon, where naturally- he won. In under seven seconds. Henri was the only competitor to cross the finish line in under seven seconds with a final time of 6.99.

Erin Vringer of Saint John took home some hardware as well with a first-place finish in the U16 800m and a second-place finish in the 1200m. Erin’s 800m Gold medal on Saturday marked a new Championship record in a time of 2:18.09- also conveniently a new provincial record for Vringer. Sunday, Vringer toed the line in the 1200m, where she led the majority of her race, but in the final fifty metres, was overtaken by Vancouver’s Maya Baechler by four one hundredths of a second.

Samuel Bourque of Notre-Dame was another ‘Golden Boy’ with the winning Men’s U20 Shot Put in a new Championship record launch of 14.93m, just shy of a New Brunswick U20 record. His competition was a nail-biter, leaving his best throw for last, something most athletes struggle to do. Bourque threw a few 13-metre throws in the 6-throw competition, with one 14.22m throw in the third round. This throw, already being a new personal best for Bourque, was not enough. In the final round of competition, he edged ahead of Kingston’s Zachary Deir with his impressive gold-medal winning throw. Samuel also competed in the Weight Throw with a fourth-place finish.

Other notable performers of the weekend were Francois Richard of Dieppe who ran to a silver medal in the U18 3000m in a time of 9:18.00, and a bronze medal in the 1500m with a time of 4:17.38. Amélie Cormier of Caraquet is bringing home a silver and bronze in the 3000m and 1500m respectively. These are both impressive personal bests for Cormier with a 11:46.12 and 5:22.07. Micah Landry and Amelia Reid both picked up bronze medals at the Championships. Landry, of St.Stephen took third in a very exciting U16 1200m run Sunday morning, overtaking Quebec’s Edward Marsh in the homestretch. Reid, of Fredericton soared high over the U18 High Jump bar as she jumped to a third-place finish with a height of 1.50m.

Rounding out the medals for New Brunswick were the U18 Girls and Boys 4x200m relay teams. The girl’s team, from ASEA made up of Moncton’s Janelle Allanach, Emily Doucet, Miramichi’s Erika Blackmore, and Riverview’s Shelby MacIsaac. The girls ran a phenomenal relay and set a new Provincial Record in an impressive time of 1:50.32 to finish in third place and pick up a bronze medal. The boy’s team, from ASEA made up of Moncton’s Gabriel Gagne, Cocagne’s Max Mazerolle, Moncton’s Austin Wamboldt and Hacheyville’s Brandon Haché ran a fast race, narrowly missing the provincial record in a time of 1:38.60 to take home the silver medal.

It’s exciting that most of our athletes reached faster times, higher heights and farther throws this weekend and they’re hoping to carry on this momentum into the summer season starting next month”.
