High jump record broken at South End meet

Students showed athletic prowess and sportsmanship
Dylan Hicks

The South End Interschool Track Meet featured a full day of track and field events for students aged 10 in 100 Mile House, June 9.

Hosted by 100 Mile House Elementary School, vice-principal Jim Price organized the event. He says the weatherman co-operated and it was great day for the event.

"The fierce competition  among competitors and their excellent  sportsmanship made for a great day of entertainment for parents and students alike. A  big thanks to everyone who helped make this day a success."

One record, set in 1985, was broken, and it came in the 13-year-old female high jump.

Keyanna  McNeil of Mile 108 set the new record 1.40 metres.
