The Semiahmoo Totems may have been shut out of the medal count in the senior division of last weekend’s BC High School Track and Field Championships, but the school’s youngest competitors fared well.

The Totems finished second overall in the team standings of the Grade 8/9 meet, which ran at Langley’s McLeod Park, concurrently with the senior meet.

“It’s really a nice result – it was great for the kids,” said Semi track and field coach Scott Yewchuk.

Semiahmoo finished with 53 total points, 17 back of first-place Vancouver College. Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir (30 points) and White Rock Christian Academy (27), rounded out the Top 10, in ninth and 10th place, respectively.

The Totems were led by Julia Greer, who won a pair of silver medals – in the 800-m and 1,500-m – and Jessica Williams, who won gold in the 400-m.

Rounding out the Semi contingent was Connor Sinclair, who won bronze in shot-put.

The school also fared well in the girls 4×400 relay, winning gold.

Other South Surrey/Cloverdale medallists at the Grade 8/9 meet included Earl Marriott’s Jade Duncanson (gold, girls 100-m); WRCA’s Nolan Schneider (gold, boys shotput); and Lord Tweedsmuir’s girls 4×100-metre relay team (gold).
