2020 ATHLETICS ALBERTA PROVINCIAL INDOOR TRACK & FIELD RANKINGS Although Covid stole the 2020 outdoor track & field season from the athletes in Alberta, the Provincial Association was able to run a normal indoor season with competitions taking place from late November 2019 until mid March of 2020. Athletics Alberta has recently released the provincial rankings for all of the age groups that took part in those competitions. Passtrak athletes did themselves & their club proud as 10 of them are ranked in the top 10 in Alberta in a total of 37 events.
