Foreman garners third straight silver track medal
Call Connor Foreman Mr. Consistency. He collected a silver medal for the third straight year in the same field event.
The Camrose Composite High School athlete earned a silver medal in the shot put event at the provincial track and field meet in Edmonton on June 1 and 2. "I threw well, but the guy who won throws all year round, so it was tough to compete with him," said Connor. "I was happy to win silver, it went well. Mrs. Angie Banack (from CCHS) was a phenomenal coach again. I have been consistent, except for a couple of bad days, all year. I progressed all spring and my distance was as good as I had hoped for at provincials."
Senior Anna Erikkson placed 10th in the 1,500 and ninth in the 3,000 metre runs and sixth on the 4 by 100 m relay team. "I was ranked seventh and finished ninth in the 3,000 m, but I beat my fastest time by 25 seconds, so I am proud of that," said Anna. "In the 1,500, I was ranked 12th going in and moved up two spots, and also beat my time from the week before by 27 seconds. That's good for the 1,500 and it was my best personal time."
Anna plans to continue running next year and train with the Augustana team.
Jenya Rust finished sixth out of 14 in the intermediate girls' 800 m. She placed seventh last year in the junior division. "My goal next year is to place in the top five. I love running and playing sports like basketball and soccer," said Jenya. "Running is fun for me."
Bryan Cole finished in 12th place in the junior boys' 3,000 m event. "I was pretty happy with that time," said Bryan. "I'm looking to doing pretty well next year. Each track meet gives you more competition and it was a great experience."
Bryan joined a track club and wants to improve each year in high school.
