Kolton Hueppelsheuser won silver in the octathalon but didn’t do as well in this other events.

“It was fairly easy but in octathalon the guy in first kept kicking my butt,” Hueppelsheuser said.

There were only three athletes in the event, which surprised Hueppelsheuser.

Although he placed only fourth in triple jump Hueppelsheuser beat his personal record. “It was a lot of fun, and now it’s time to sleep.”

Hueppelsheuser’s brother, Tyson, won bronze in the U15 4×110-m rely.

Tyson went to the Games with a lot of confidence in his triple jump and placed sixth in the event.

For the entire Summer Games zone 4, which includes Bentley, Rimbey and Ponoka, brought in 12 gold, 20 silver and 28 bronze medals.

Softball get silver

The zone 4 softball team took home silver from the Games.

Ponoka player Carmen Lomas loved playing in Lethbridge and bonded with her teammates.

“I had a great time,” Lomas said.

In the first and second games Lomas’s team won 11-0, in the third game they won 9-3.

“The only game we lost was the gold medal game,” Lomas said. The final score was 5-4.

Lomas says the Games went well despite the hot weather and lack of wind to cool the players.

“I would definitely go again if I had the opportunity,” Lomas said.
