Felix Richter and Steven Schan, both members of the Oceanside Track and Field Club, were in Seattle earlier this month for a meet, looking to make some noise in their respective events.

Richter, who attends Kwalikum Secondary School, and Schan, who attends Ballenas Secondary School, both set personal bests at the meet in Seattle, Washington on February 6.

For both athletes, this marked the first race over 39 inch hurdles. Both Richter and Schan finished second in their 60-metre hurdle heats, seeing them reach the finals.

Richter finished third in the 60m hurdles with a personal best time of 7.01 seconds.

In the 200m dash, Richter finished in first place with a time of 22.53 seconds.

In the 400m event, Schan had a very fast finish in his heat, moving from fourth to first in the last 100 metres for a time of 53.61 seconds.

In the 200m, Schan had a personal best time of 23.96, his first time under 24 seconds, which saw him once again finish first in his heat.

The Oceanside Track and Field Club will be holding their registration night next Tuesday, February 23 at Ballenas Secondary School from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., which includes a new family information session (6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.).
