Sights and scenes from the Moose Jaw high school city track and field championship

Record-setting day as handful of athletes set new marks in range of events

MOOSEJAWTODAY.COM -- Maybe it was the weather, maybe it was a successful season of training or maybe there’s something in the water, but it was a special day for many an athlete at the Moose Jaw High Schools Athletic Association track and field championships.

The event took place on Wednesday at Gutheridge Field and saw a host of new records set, including a couple that had been on the books for decades.

That included one of the longest-standing records on the books, as Peacock’s Nikolina Kapovic broke Deb Noble’s 49-year-old mark in the senior girls 1,500 metres. The provincial gold medal hopeful also took down the 20-year-old mark set by Kailey Smith in 2004 in the 3,000 metres.

Kapovic wasn’t the only double record-setter, either.

Cornerstone’s Ademide Adewumi continued to re-write the throws record books, setting new city marks in the shot put and discus, while Central’s Blake Maltais broke the intermediate girls triple jump and long jump records.

Be sure to check back for a full round-up of all the results, and here’s a selection of photos from afternoon action.
