Coyotes Reach Gold / Silver Standards in Brampton
The Meaford Coyotes Track Club sent 19 grade 2-8 members to compete in the Brampton Bullets "Standards" Meet on Saturday, July 23rd.
A "standards" meet is not based soon who came 1st, 2nd or 3rd, but who ran a certain time to reach a "standard". If six athletes reached a "gold standard" then they would all receive a "gold" ribbon. If 10 athletes all ran fast enough, or jumped high enough, or threw far enough, then they would all receive a "silver" ribbon. The same applied for the "bronze" ribbon.
As our youngsters are into their "taper" phase of training in preparation for their provincial championships on July 23-24 at York University, all were in great shape. The results showed as all 19 members earned either gold or silver ribbons in both of their events, and several clocked some pretty impressive times.
