Wolves Athletics Club runner Mirelle Martens finished off her track season in style on Sunday, winning the Junior Women’s 3000m title at the 2014 Athletics Alberta Provincial Outdoor Championships in Sherwood Park.

In a replay of last month’s ASAA Provincial High School 3000m Senior Womens race, Martens and St Paul’s Nicole Kitt separated themselves early from the filed and ran stride-for-stride for 2800m.  Martens superior kick was again the difference as she stopped the clock in 10:31, 3 seconds better than Kitt.  Martens time was a new personal best and meet record.

Also on Sunday, she contested the Junior Women’s 800m, finishing 6th in a personal best time of 2:24.

Martens has committed to GPRC for this fall where she’ll do double duty as both a x-country runner and mid-fielder for the Wolves Women’s Soccer team.

A number of other local athlete’s had podium finishes including:

Alexi Watson            Midget Women          Triple Jump      Silver      Long Jump        Bronze

Dylan Zambonelli    Junior Men               110m Hurdles   Bronze    400m Hurdles  Bronze

Xavier Crosby           Midget Men               Shot Put             Silver

Bill Corcoran            M50-59 Men              Shot Put             Bronze


Cianna Forseille had a trio of 4th place finishes in the Youth SP, DT, and Jav at the 2014 AA Outdoor Championships

While the track and field season is over for local junior and senior athletes,  youth and midget athletes are 1.5 weeks away from the Alberta Summer Games in Airdrie, July 24 to 27.
