"Very happy with the performances of the students" is how coach Brandon Coleman characterizes the effort of his athletes at last week's SD&G track and field championships, which were held in Ottawa.
He says he is particularly pleased with the discus throwers, Jack Devries in the midget boys long jump, and Annie Bender in the junior girls 400 m race. Coleman also tips his hat to junior boy Caleb Douma, who won the 200 m and was second in the 100 m.
