Two silver medals ‘a good meet’ for Tadesse

North Surrey runner places second at BC championship meet

Long distance runner Ephraim Tadesse of North Surrey Secondary won a pair of silver medals at last weekend’s B.C. High School Track and FIeld Championships, finishing as the runner-up in both the boys 2,000m steeplechase and the 1,500m race.

He completed the steeplechase in 6:11.12, 2.25 seconds off the pace. He was bumped up into the runner-up position in the 1,500m race after crossing the line in third place. His time of 3:57.28 was good for the silver medal, after a competitor was disqualified for interference.

“I think I could have run faster in the 1,500,” said the Grade 12 student. “But I’m happy with the meet overall. Of course I wish I could have done a bit better in my last high school meet, but it was a good meet.”

Timothy Delcourt of Kwantlen Park Secondary took the bronze medal in the boys 3,000m run, his time of 8:38.07 just 2.2 seconds back of the winner.

Jasmine Gill of Sullivan Heights Secondary just missed a medal by placing fourth in the girls 800m race, her time of 2:16.50 just 26 one-hundredths of a second behind the third place finisher.
