The Lake City Falcons track and field team is running to new heights thanks to a dedicated group of athletes and the tutelage of teacher and coach, Tim Hurley.

“At this school, we’ve never had so many compete in track and field,” Hurley said. “We’re bringing it back.”

The Falcons had 13 athletes in Prince George April 30 for the Sub Zero Track Meet at Masich Place Stadium.

They competed in various running events, hurdles, long jump, triple jump, discus and javelin.

“We did really well,” Hurley said, adding the team has been training since September every Monday and Wednesday.

The team featured students from the Lake City Secondary School Columneetza Campus, a cross section of athletes grades 7-9. One student, Gabrielle Gracia, who attends Maranatha, was in Grade 6.

“The guys and girls all came back with smiles on their faces,” Hurley said. “We have so many talented boys and girls, especially in the running events. It really sparked interest in the sport at our school.”
