Olivia Karn, a grade 8 student from Coldwater, and a member of the Meaford Coyotes Track Club, has been selected to the Ontario Midget Track Team.
Karn will be competing at York University on Saturday at the Ontario-Quebec Midget Dual Meet and will be racing in the 800m event.
This is a wonderful achievement as she is only a 1st year Midget and has the opportunity to make the team again next year as well.
Karn placed 3rd in the 800m at the Midget Team Selection Meet on Saturday, January 28th. She also won the Athletics Ontario 2016 "Top 13 years and Under Middle Distance Runner" Award last Fall.
Olivia has been running with the Meaford Coyotes for 2 years and has continued to improve as each season passes. Her best time for 800m is 2:22.18.
