Cheetah Invitational

TYKE & PEEWEE PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS The Provincial Track & Field Championships for Tyke, (U10) & Peewee, (U12) athletes took place on June 23rd & 24th in Calgary. Passtrak, (Crowsnest Pass Track & Field Club) was represented by 3 Tykes & 3 Peewees. The athletes arrived at the track on Saturday morning ready to go but they were met with a torrential down pour. The meet Directors made the decision to cancel the competition for Saturday. As this was a Provincial Championship all of the scheduled events still had to be contested so the decision was made to move all of Saturdays events to Sunday. So Sunday morning the athletes showed up to face the Herculean task of completing 8 events in one day!!! That didn’t phase the Passtrak athletes for even a moment.
