Central Cyclones competitor Ellah Flanagan found herself in a unique position once the South Central district track and field district championship came to a close.

Flanagan was the lone athlete in the event to pick up wins in all four of her events on the day, sweeping her way to the junior girls aggregate title with a perfect 40 points.

That included a time of 14.53 seconds to win the 80-metre hurdles and a 12.97-second effort to take spot in the 100 metres. The jumps went just as well, as Flanagan cleared 1.43 metres for gold in the high jump and then finished things off with 9.77-metre performance in the triple jump.

Cyclones teammate Katie Rogers was right behind Flanagan thanks to wins in the 400 metres, 800 metres and a record-setting 1,500 metres to go along with a second place in the 3,000 metres.

Central’s Keaton Belsher found himself in a similar position on his way to taking top spot in the intermediate boys division.

Belsher won the 100 metres, long jump and triple jump to go along with a second place in the 200 metres. His 38 points were four better than second-place finisher and 100-m hurdles record-setter Zayden Anderson from Vanier, who also had wins 

Cyclones junior boys competitor Javin Boynton was also a win away from a sweep, taking victories in the 100 metres, 200 metres and shot put before landing second in the long jump. Distance running specialist Kaeleb Tabin from Peacock was four points back thanks to wins in the 800 metres, 1,500 metres and 3,000 metres.

Central’s Emily Lin won the intermediate girls division with 30 points, while Jadyn Palaschuk had 30 points to win the senior girls division, including a record in the 800 metres.

Quinton Fettes won the senior boys class with 34 points, including a record in the senior boys long jump.
