Female athlete of the meet

Northern Collegiate’s Lauren Perkins was named female athlete of the Meet at the Lambton-Kent high school track and field finals on May 11 in Chatham.

St. Clair Secondary’s  Michael Pugsley was male athlete of the meet.

Perkins won the junior girls 400-metre dash, 800-metre run (seen here), the 1,500-metre run, and was a member of the victorious open girls 4X400 relay team.

Her performance helped Northern to a clean sweep at the award presentations. Athletes from the city high school claimed all six division titles: midget boys and girls, junior boys and girls, senior boys and girls, as well as the overall team title.
