SC Comp gets track and field season in the starting blocks
BY RYAN DAHLMAN
The starter's pistol is going off April 24 for another high-school season of track and field as the Swift Current Comprehensive High School will host the Ardens and Colts Invitational Track and Field Meet. The meet starts at 10 a.m. (Please see attached schedule on the
story on www.prairiepost.com)
Rosalie Flynn, co-athletic director of the school and one of the three track coaches, is excited about the event. “It’s the first meet for all the teams coming,” explained Flynn who added they have another ‘mini-meet’ coming up next week already in Moose Jaw. “There hasn’t been much practice time.” Teams who will participate include Gull Lake, Moose Jaw Peacock, Moose Jaw Vanier, Lloydminster Comprehensive and Weyburn Comprehensive. They run a full slate of events, except for pole vault. With this event, athletes are trying to earn their way onto to the team which will go to provincials May 18. The top two athletes in each particular event will go to provincials.
Swift Current has enjoyed a lot of success in the past due in large part to the coaches.
The coaches expect dedication to the team. All students must attend at least three of four per week practices to stay with the team. Currently, there are 36 students on the team which is comparable to other seasons. “We’re not running a drop-in,” states Flynn, who added those on the team are definitely dedicated. The other aspect is that Flynn and the other coaches, Gord Husband and Stephen Hurst, have all been successful in track and field in the past. Hurst enjoyed some provincial success in track and field as well. Both Flynn and Husband have their impressive Level III coaching certificates. Flynn enjoyed success in track and field from elementary school all the way through and including university. While the season is starting, Flynn said the team is in need of some volunteer help.
She added the team is looking for more help with coaches and even track officials. Anyone who has prior experience in track and field events and can help out, is needed to help keep it going.
S.C. Comp’s Colt/Arden of the Week
Arden and Colt of the Week are the grade nine mixed doubles team of Rebecca Krahn and Ian Hayes.
Krahn is a dedicated player who works
hard to be successful. She has a quick racquet at the net, and she serves very well. Hayes is a dedicated student athlete who has worked very hard to perfect his smash and his cross court shots. He too is an excellent server.
They both have improved considerably
with service reception. Our mixed doubles team performed very well at senior tournaments considering that without a doubt they are always the youngest team in the mixed doubles competition and the mixed doubles competition is always strong. This past weekend Hayes and Krahn competed in the Rolling Hills senior badminton sectional playoffs. They had a very tough first match, but
managed to score 14 and 18 points against the Herbert team who placed second in the playoff.
They defeated the Vanguard team in the
round robin to place third in their pool. Ian and Rebecca now move on to play in the junior sub sectional playoffs in Gull Lake. They are a pleasure to coach and their coaches anticipate a strong showing at the upcoming competitions.
Congratulations and good luck Rebecca and Ian.
