The girls won the 4×200-metre relay.

Haven Dufty set a meet record of 2.45 metres in the standing long jump.

Hunter Dufty set the meet record of 8.61 metres in the shot putt.

Venkataraman placed third in the 800-metre run and Avery placed fourth in the 50-metre run.

Their point total was 3,716 which equaled the meet record and was an impressive 295 points ahead of their nearest rival.

The team was put together by Blair Dufty, Haven and Hunter’s father and Gustav Allander, coach of Penticton Track and Field helped train the girls over the last two months.

The team has only been working together for a short time and did extremely well, taking home medals, a trophy and a $1,250 bursary.
