McMath athletes aim to cap stellar season at Zones

A total of 47 Wildcats are preparing for the regional championships

It has been a stellar year on track and field for the McMath secondary team.

Like every other high school, the two-year, COVID-enforced hiatus from competitive events has weighed heavily on young athletes and their progression.

So it was impressive for McMath to see a total of 47 athletes qualify for the upcoming Zone Championships, where they will compete against students from Surrey and Delta, as well as fellow Richmond athletes.

One of them, Logan Duley, currently has one of the fastest times in the province in both the 100m and 200m.

Here are the first place finishes for the following athletes in the recent Richmond High School Championships:
