Two athletes from Kelowna make it to podium in heptathlon at provincial combined events finals in Abbotsford

Keely Watts-Watling was a silver medal winner at the B.C. High School Combined Events Championship last weekend in Abbotsford.

A Grade 10 student at KSS, Watling took second place in the heptathlon—seven events—with a total of 4, 474 points.

Langley’s Georgia Ellenwood won gold for the third straight year with 4, 955 points,

The performance will warrant Watling some consideration as a member of Team B.C, for the nationals in August in PEI.

Erin Kokayko, a Grade 12 student from Kelowna Christian, ran a personal best in the 800 metres and placed third overall in the heptathlon.

Another local Grade 10 athlete, Saskia Kowalik from OKM, competed in the same event and placed eighth.

Rostam Turner, a Grade 11 student from Kelowna Secondary entered the decathlon—10 events held over two days—and finished in third place  with a personal best.

All four athletes will be competing this weekend at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships in Burnaby.
