Ind Track | Vogel, DeGagne earn medals

March 4, 2019 - The Lethbridge College Kodiaks Indoor Track team was in action last Saturday, participating in the Running Room Grand Prix #2 in Edmonton.

When the dust settled, the Kodiaks returned home with a pair of bronze medals and lots of confidence as they now prepare for the upcoming ACAC championships. 

Kodiaks newcomer Danna DeGagne and second year NESA student Brooklyn Vogel had the top performances of the day, each earning bronze medals.

DeGagne won her medal in the 300m, while Vogel shaved four seconds off her personal best to take third in the 600m event.  

Rebecca Sweeney continued her improvement with a sixth place finish in the 300m. 

On the men's side, Foster Isiche had another standout meet for Lethbridge. The first year Justice Studies student finished sixth in the 300m event with a personal best time of 38.86.

Tanner Rent and Danny Robdrup also had notable performances, each finishing seventh in their events, the 600m and 3000m, respectively.

Both male and female 4x400m relay teams were within a couple of stride-lengths of a medal position to end the day. The women’s team was particularly close to earning a medal, finishing in fourth position.

Head coach Simon Schaerz says both teams should be capable of winning a medal at the ACAC championships.

The Kodiaks will now prepare for those championships, which will be hosted by SAIT at the Repsol Centre in Calgary on March 15 and 16.
