Despite the windy conditions, three new records were set at the Moose Jaw Section track and field Meet.
Peacock’s Emma Maelde broke the junior girls high jump record from 1975 on Wednesday. She jumped 1.55m to break the former record of 1.54m. Prior to the event, she was focused on setting a new record.
“It was really good. At the mini meet, my competitor, Sarah Waldner had jump 1.56m to break the mini meet one, so I wanted it be my goal to beat the Moose Jaw record,” she said. “I’m feeling good and I think it would be really good to jump a little higher to know what I can do and try and push myself.”
Senior McKenna Ehman from Peacock has been trying to push herself all track season to get over 11 metres in shot put and she did very well, throwing 11.39m. She broke a 2010 record of 11.30m.
“I was pretty excited, but I knew I could do better. I threw an 11.87m in Weyburn,” she said. “I’m excited, but now my goal is to get to 12m by the end of the season. I am pretty confident in myself and I know I can do it.”
