CVAC Jaguars collect medal haul at JD provincial track and field meet

Rudolf Kruger leads the way with double gold

Six athletes from the CVAC Jaguars track and field club competed in the BC Junior Development Provincial Championships — for nine- to 13-year-olds — in White Rock last month, and they all came home with awards for top-eight finishes.

Both Jaguars entries in the JD 10 age group won gold medals, Rudolf Kruger in the 600m and 1000m, and Jackson Lenarcic in javelin. Kruger also finished second in the 60m hurdles, fourth in the 200m, and eighth in the 100m. Lenarcic also placed second in shot put, third in discus, seventh in 60m hurdles, and eighth in high jump.

Jaguars athletes finished first and second in the JD 12 800m race walk, as Annette Blumel placed first and Tori Johnston was second. Johnston added bronze in hammer, one spot ahead of Blumel. Also in the JD 12 division, Nova Wedmann-Kent finished third in high jump and narrowly missed the finals for the 100m.

Amelia Varga represented the Jaguars in the JD 13 age group, placing eighth in the 100m.

Many of the Jaguars’ results were personal bests for the 2019 season.
