Congratulations to the Gonzaga Girls Track Team who were the NL Girls Team in the National Nike Grand Prix Track and Field High School Championship in Toronto this past weekend! Jennifer Boland, Julie Canning, Allison Crowley, Renee Devereaux, Emily Kieley, Quinn McGettigan, Isabella Morgan, Kathleen Shea, Ruth Shelton, Sheila South, and Zoey Walsh traveled with coaches Lisa Kavanagh and Gillian Browne and were an absolute joy to travel with and watch – exhibiting great sportsmanship, enthusiasm and determination. Wonderful representatives of our school and province!

Big congratulations to Jennifer Boland (Level I) who competed in three of the ten female events and won medals in all three events!!

  • Silver – 100m
  • Silver – 200m
  • Bronze – 4X100m Relay

These girls have been training hard all winter and have had great support from the St. John’s area track and field community – NLAA’s George Stanoev (High Jump), Cygnus’ Kathryn Bautista (Long Jump), Evan Whalen (Shot Put), and Pearlgate’s Mark Miller, Doug Halliday, and Ray Will.

Special thanks to all those Vikings who watched the event on live stream and sent hundreds and hundreds of messages and tweets to our girls throughout the weekend!! Amazing school spirit and support!!
