Track and Field

What another amazing year with an amazing group of very dedicated and talented athletes.  The track season started out with much optimism and motivation to achieve our very best and that we did.

Highlights:  Dalmeny had the pleasure of hosting Conference A in our backyard and home field advantage seemed to play a role in an outstanding team performance.   With pride Dalmeny High (and awesome PV athletes) became an enormous team consisting of 92 athletes, defeating our nearest rival Langham by over 2000 points.

75 Athletes competed at Districts at the new Gordie Howe Park. Again our athletes did not disappoint, winning the meet and sending a record 22 athletes to Provincials in Moose Jaw.  Dalmeny High won the Junior and Senior Aggregate and are the 2019 District Champions for the 4th year in a row.  

A special thanks to all our coaches and volunteers for the behind the scenes organizing so our athletes can do their ultimate best.
