Jun 3 2019 - NBIAA Provincial Championships – Highlights
This past weekend Rexton played host to this year’s NBIAA championship after a last-minute change. Similar to last weekend though, we had spectacular weather and very few illegal winds, that made for excellent competition.
Some highlights include:Shelby MacIsaac of Riverview competed in the 100m, 200m, and 400m in the Junior category only to come out on top in all three events. Shelby also set a new record in the 400m with a new time of 58.13, which beats the old one by over half a second! Erin Vringer of Saint John won the 800m as well as the 1500m in the Junior category, also setting a new record! In the 1500m, Erin beat Laura Dickinson’s old record of 4:43.31 with a new time of 4:38.36. Caroline Gagnon of Odyssee competed in and finished first the 100m and 400m hurdle events as well as long jump. Caroline also set a new record in the 100m hurdles with a new time of 15.90, beating Victoria LeBlanc’s old time of 16.15, set back in 2015. In the junior girls high jump competition the old record previously held by Stephanie Doiron (1.54m) was broken and is now shared by Sara Grant of Tantramar and Kiersten Hicks of Quatre Vents with a new height of 1.55m. Brandon Hache of W-A-Losier competed in the 100m (Junior category) and won with a time of 11.65, only 0.1 off of the NBIAA record.Brandon also won the 200m event with a time of 24.08. Jordan Henri of MacNaughton competed in the Senior category and won both the 100m and 200m events with respective times of 10.61 and 22.38. Jordan set records in both events although for the 100m only his time from prelim (10.85) counts as a record because of the illegal wind.
