Despite the soggy weather that fell on the city on Wednesday a number of records were eclipsed at the Prince Albert and Area Athletic Association's (P4A) track and field championships held at Prime Ministers' Park. Schools from the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division and Ecole Valois competed in the two-day event. Shown in the photo is some action from the pee wee girl's 80-metre race.

The weather might have gone south on the second day of the Prince Albert and Area Athletic Association’s (P4A) annual track and field championship this week, but that didn’t seem to hinder the athletes.

A total of 36 records were shattered during the two days of competition at Prime Ministers’ Park with Gage Grassick from East Central, Calvin Napope from St. Louis and Braden Schneider from Vickers each setting three new standards.

Grassick bettered previous marks in the girl’s 10-and-under category (novice) for the 1000 metres, 600 meters and high jump while Napope got his name in the record books for the 13-year-old boy’s (bantam) 80-metres, discus and high jump. Schneider established new records in the 11-year-old boy’s (atom) 60-metres, 600 metres and 150 –metres events.

Several other competitors erased a pair of names each from the archives including Aaron Campbell from Vickers, Emily Cole-Johnson from Meath Park, Caleb Gitzel from Birch Hills, Abby Soyko from Red Wing, Brandon Tillmanns from Vickers and Kaylee Ilnisky from Kinistino.

The record-setting performances ultimately helped most land an aggregate championship in their age group as Grassick won the honour for 10-and-under girls, Campbell topped the field in the 10-and-under boys, Soyko led the way in the 11-year-old girls, Schneider ran away with the title for 11-year-old boys, Tillmanns captured first place for 12-year-old boys, Ilnisky had the best result for 13-year-old girls and Napope cruised to victory in the 13-year-old boy’s category.

Of the 10 age classes, Vickers School captured the most points in four while also finishing third in two others. They did not have competitors in the two oldest age classes as the school does not have students in the 14-year-old (midget) division.

This week’s meet was for students in the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division, along with Ecole Valois, while the Prince Albert Roman Catholic School Division will hold its city track and field event next Friday at Prime Ministers’ Park.

Following is a list of the records that were broken along with the top three finishers in aggregate points for each age class plus the top three schools for each division.
