RUSSELL – Track athletes from North Dundas District High School have been dodging the raindrops in recent weeks, and setting some personal best records at the same time.

First-place finishes were coveted by Liam Antille (in both the 80-metre dash and the 110-metre hurdles), Tyler Snelson (in the 200-metre race), Jack Link (in the 1,500-metre race), Zac Hamilton (in the long jump), and Curtis Bell (in the 400-metre hurdles).
“We had a great day with some awesome results,” team coach Patti Hall said.
Aside the athletes in the top spot, North Dundas also had a handful in the top three.
Alvaro Castillejo Arjona was second the in the 400-metre race, and Jack Link was runner-up in the 800-metre race. Fabienne Puenter finished second in the 400-metre hurdles, and Siena Dean was third in the triple jump.
