The East Kootenay Track and Field Club worked extremely hard this year and came up with some excellent results. A number of athletes have had great success at the high school and club levels, breaking into provincial rankings and putting track and field on the map in Cranbrook and the East Kootenays. The track community across the province has been shown there are good things happening here.
Results speak volumes this season and the East Kootenay Track and Field Club is looking to build off the successes of 2014 in order to carry the momentum into the 2015 season.
