42 Revelstoke Secondary athletes traveled to Hillside track in Kamloops where they competed in the north Okanagan Zone Track meet.

With temperatures soaring, RSS track team members managed to deal with the heat and win pennants in five out of six divisions.  The only pennant not claimed by RSS was the senior girls which was won by PVSS in Armstrong who finished 14 points ahead of second place Revelstoke.

Strong individual results included Nick Flick’s 150 centimetre high jump, Peter Grimm’s 43 metre hammer throw, and Deena Dudman’s 14.22 second 80 metre hurdle race.

In order to advance to the Okanagan Valley Track meet, RSS athletes had to finish in the top three of their competitions.  Each of the 42 Revelstoke athletes managed to do that meaning that RSS will be bringing one of the largest teams in recent memory down to the Valley meet in Kelowna on May 15.

Correction: The caption for the photo accompanying this story had the wrong name. It said the hurdler was Deena Dudman when, in fact, it is Cailin English. We regret the error.
