Riouxs, Schaeffer rep CHSS at track provincials

Three Charles Hays Secondary students represented Prince Rupert at the 2015 BC High School Track and Field Championships in Langley.

Three Charles Hays Secondary students represented Prince Rupert at the 2015 BC High School Track and Field Championships in Langley in early June and they impressed with many personal bests.

A returnee from 2014, Kevin Rioux blazed a trail for teammates Jason Rioux and Cody Schaeffer with his performances in high, long and triple jump. He placed 14th in high jump, reaching 175 cm, an improvement over the 160 cm he posted last year. In long jump, Rioux hit 5.51 m and in triple jump, he posted a 10.82 m result. That was good for 15th and 23rd respectively.

“Kevin Rioux again led the team … and it will be his final trip to provincials as he is graduating from Charles Hays this year,” track head coach Dighton Haynes said.

The younger Jason Rioux reached a personal best in long jump at 5.32 m and cleared 160 cm in high jump, “similar to his zone jump” Haynes mentioned.

Lastly, Cody Schaeffer ran a personal best in the 400 m race, completing the circuit in 55.51 seconds and came close to his past records in the 100 m and 200 m races.

“Jason and Cody finished between 20-25 in all their events out of 32. Jason and Cody were competing as juniors and have two more years of eligibility left for track and field,” said the coach.
