Barriere Secondary

The 2012-2013 high school athletic season has come to a close. The surprise of this athletic year has to be the success of our newly formed Track and Field team. With 22 athletes competing at the West Zone Championship, Barriere Secondary finished the meet with 20 athletes qualifying for the Okanagan Championship.

Notable performances from the West/North Zone Championships were; 2nd  place finish in 400m and 3rd  in grade 8 girls high jump by Ivanna Villeneuve, 3rd  place in grade 8 boys triple jump by Tristan Brackman, 1st  place in Junior Boys 300m Hurdles and 2nd  place in Grade 8 boys Shot Put by Tristan Holt, 2nd  place in Junior girls 200m by Breann Fisher, 1st  place in Junior Boys Javelin, 2nd  place in Hammer Throw and 3rd  place in Shot Put by Marvin Blanke, 1st  place in Junior Girls Shot Put and 3rd  place in 80m Hurdles by Chelsey Lloyd, 3rd  place in Junior Boys Triple Jump by Jacob Peterson, 1st  place in Sr. Boys Long Jump and 3rd  place in Shot Put by Quinn Brackman, 1st  place in Sr. Boys high jump and 3rd  in Long Jump by Spencer Pawloff, 1st  place in Sr. Girls Shot Put by Cora Maclaren, and 2nd  place in Sr. Boys Javelin by Terry Wheelhouse.

Only a handful of Barriere athletes decided to attend the Okanagan Valley Championship. Those that did performed very well. Tristan Brackman jumped his way to 3rd  place in the grade 8 boys Triple Jump event. While Tristan Holt finished in 3rd  place in the Jr. Boys 300 meter hurdles event competing against older athletes, and captured another 3rd  place finish in the grade 8 boys Shot Put. Marvin Blanke finished in 2nd  place in the Junior Boys Hammer throw, and he captured the title of Junior Boys Okanagan Valley Javelin Champion. Unfortunately for Marvin there is no Javelin events at the grade 9 Provincial Championship. Cora Maclaren finished in 3rd  place in Sr. Girls Shot Put qualifying for the Senior Track and Field Provincial Championships.

Barriere also had two athletes invited to attend the Grade 8 and 9 Track and Field Provincial Championships Invitational based on their performances through out the Track and Field Season. Chelsey Lloyd was invited to compete in Girls Shot Put and Tristan Holt will join her competing in the boys Shot Put event.


Other exciting news from this Spring season is our golf team qualified for the Okanagan Championship in their first season of competition. The entire team will be competing again next year for Barriere which promises to be a very exciting season for Barriere’s golf team.
