June 5th Meets Press Release
A total of 5 meets will be held in the greater Moncton area on Saturday June 5th. Following last weekend’s action, we’ll see most of the same athletes on the track and in the field, despite a few familiar faces will open their 2021 season. The two highlight meets will be the ASEA High School Challenge Cup as well as the 2ndAetos Twilight meet of the season.
Action in Moncton (@ Medavie Blue Cross Stadium):
The ASEA High School Challenge Cup will play the role of the championship event in ASEA’s High School Dual Meet Series. We will see once again, the MacNaugthon Highlanders against the Tremble Trojans. In action, the young sprinter from Tremble, David Mavakala, will be running the junior boys 100m and 200m. Last time he stepped on the track; he made a few heads turn running 23.77s in the 200m. In the senior boys 100m and 200m, David’s brother, Daniel, will battle it out against his Trojan teammates Kristoff Hemmings and Dominick Charles.
For the ASEA Sunshine Open, action starts at 1:00 pm. It will be the second head-to-head battle between ASEA and Chaleur Athletics. We can expect some great results from both groups. ASEA will mainly present a strong field of athletes in the long sprints as well as the mid-distance events. Chaleur will once again show up ready to compete with a big group of athletes from all age groups. Kirsten Hicks, 2019 Legion National high jump bronze medalist, will make her season debut in the first high jump competition of the season in New-Brunswick. Others from Chaleur to watch are Eloise Hachey and Jaden Gammon and on ASEA's side it will be hard to miss the performances of Emily Doucet and Fred Parent. We will also keep our eye on Audrey Roy-Beausoleil, who currently is ranked first in Canada in the 3000m U18.
Action in Dieppe (@ Anna-Malenfant Track):
Starting off the action in the morning will be a 2nd matchup between Riverview High and Mathieu-Martin in the 3rd meet of the High School Classic Series. Jocelyne Allanach will be looking to up her throws from last Saturday’s meet in both the discus and shot put. Riverview’s Dante Cormier will be wheeling down the track once again in the para boys 100m and 200m. Also, opening up his season will be Guillaume Basque in the senior boys 100m.
The second meet of the day will consist of the 4th and final meet in the High School Classic Series between Clément-Cormier and L.J.R. Feature athletes to mention are Rémi Ouellette from LJR, he’ll be competing in the para 100m, 200m. Also, Roxanne Albert from Clément-Cormier will be on the start line once again in the 100m and 200m, trying to beat her performances from last weekend. In the field events, we’ll see Marie-Ève Maillet competing once again in both the junior girls shot put and javelin.
Looking into the evening action, the 2nd Aetos Twilight meet of the season will include a few races but will be mainly focused on the throws events. Coming into the competition, Samuel Bourque will be eager to perform as he missed the provincial U23 discus record by a slight margin last Saturday. Heather LeBlanc will have her sight set on the provincial Masters hammer record of 25.40m as well as the shot put record of 7.97m. In addition, Aetos’s own Owen LeBlanc will be making an appearance in the hammer throw as he will look to throw one in the sector to secure that provincial U14 boys hammer record.
