Richmond athletes found success at the recent B.C. High School Track and Field Championships, which were held from June 9 to 11 in Langley.

For students to make it to the championships, they had to qualify through the Richmond Zone meet, which happened in early May. Then they competed against Delta and Surrey students in the South Fraser Zone Championships to determine who would compete at the provincial event.

Among Richmond schools, the following athletes and teams placed in the top 10:

• Lawrence Man (Burnett), hammer throw junior (first place)

• Lexi Lawson (McMath), high jump senior (10th place)

• Logan Duley (McMath), 100 metre dash senior (fifth place)

• Lyle Lo (McMath), triple jump senior (fourth place) and long jump senior (sixth place)

• McMath men’s junior “A” 4x100 relay team: Allari Ortiz Lee, Bodhi Chan, Zach Kennedy, Damon Wijakoon (eighth place)

• McMath men’s junior “A” 4x400 relay team: Adam Bisaillon-White, Zach Kennedy, Niko Morovic, Max Ellison (fourth place)

• McMath men’s senior “A” 4x100 relay team: Lyle Lo, Jake Bolton, Teo Lin, Logan Duley (seventh place)

• McMath women’s senior “A” 4x100 relay team: Teagan Ng, Emma Bradley-Tse, Lexi Shury, Kaiya Hamada (fifth place)

• McMath women’s senior “A” 4x400 relay team: Emma Bradley-Tse, Lexi Shury, Teagan Ng, Kaiya Hamada (fifth place)

• Ruby Kump (McMath), 3,000 metres Grade 8 (10th place)

As well, several Kajaks athletes who go to school outside Richmond set meet records. Grade 11 South Delta Secondary School student Aidan Turner set a new B.C. high school meet record and a new B.C. U18 men's pole vault record. Turner was also was named the most inspirational athlete of the meet. 

Matthew Uliana, a senior at St George’s, swept gold and set new B.C. high school meet records for shot put, discus, and hammer throw for senior men. He was named co-winner of the meet’s outstanding male athlete award.

“It was great to see all different schools come together,” says Kajaks executive board member Lanie Man. “The spirit of friendly competition, camaraderie, and sportsmanship were all put to play at this three-day long weekend meet.”

Man adds that this was the first B.C. high school meet since 2019.
