One of the benefits of Ponoka Secondary Campus’ (PSC) running track is it can play host to many different track and field events.

One of the benefits of Ponoka Secondary Campus’ (PSC) running track is it can play host to many different track and field events.

For the last few weeks several key track and field events have been happening, with the latest one, the junior high track meet for Wolf Creek including St. Augustine Catholic School held on Thursday, June 2.

Organizer and Grade 8 teacher at PSC Adrian Paolinelli said the goal is to improve on the school’s track team. “Our track team is in the development stage. We want to develop it up a little bit.”

His hope is to eventually rubberize the entire track to draw even more events to the school and give young Ponoka athletes a feel for how the rubberized track works. He suggests some athletes perform better in an individual sport and being part of the track team would allow them to represent the school but run on an individual basis. “Track is open to more of a wide skill-set.”

Paolinelli’s goal is to develop strong interest in the program to improve on the program.
