Medicine Hat’s Panthers Track and Field Club got some work in this past weekend with the Calgary Spring Challenge meet, and one of their athletes wound up ranking near the top of the leaderboard in the overall standings.

Zaynna Willoughby was fourth among 26 girls in the under-14 age division Saturday, then third in the same group Sunday thanks to a couple of solid results.

Willoughby posted a second-place high jump of 1.30 metres, was third in the 80 metre hurdles, in 15.17 seconds, then added a third-place shot put attempt of 7.04 metres which helped her in the overall standings. Fourth in long jump, fifth in javelin and ball throw and 10th in both the 80 and 150-metre sprints, it was quite a weekend for her.

Other Panthers medallists included Kyle Spackman (second in under-18 long jump, 6.16 metres), Orin May (second in under-18 100 metres, 11.37 seconds and third in 200 metres, 23.61 seconds) and Lukas Herter (second in under-18 200 metres, 23.12 seconds and third in 400 metre, 52.45 seconds).

Christopher Gendron was fifth in the under-10 60 metre dash and sixth in the 150 metre run as his best finishes.
