This past Sunday over 800 athletes from across the province competed at their respective NBIAA regionals in hopes to qualify for the NBIAA Track and Field Provincial Championships that will take place Saturday, June 2nd at the Moncton Stadium.
Qualification regionals were held in both Moncton and Saint John to determine the top eight athletes in each event, from each region, who will compete in this weekend’s provincial championship. In the case of high jump, a qualifying height was required to advance.
''Each year we look forward to the annual NBIAA regional meets as we see both newcomers and more experienced athletes showcasing their athletic talent as they seek a qualifying spot for the provincial championship. This past Sunday, there were many great performances from athletes at both regional meets. This sets the stage for an exciting upcoming NBIAA Provincial Championship this coming Saturday, with the possibility of multiple NBIAA records being broken in Moncton's World Class Track and Field venue, the Moncton Stadium.'' said Gabriel LeBlanc executive director of Athletics New Brusnwick
