Canucks cut into Victoria track schedule

The Victoria Track Series third meet of 2011 was reduced to four races due to a scheduling conflict with the wildly popular Vancouver Canucks and their June 4 win over the Boston Bruins.

Enjoying the weather sunny skies and mild wind of Oak Bay High’s Jack Wallace Memorial track was Riley McQueen, who won the 1,500 metre and Jeanette Van Den Bulk, who won the 400m.

McQueen finished just ahead of former University of Calgary teammate Maddy MacDonald in four minutes, 45.10 seconds and 4:48.10, respectively.

Local master runner, Jim Barwise, continued his great season winning his age-group in the 800m in 2:23.

Meet four of eight is at Centennial Stadium, June 18. Gun sounds at 6:30 p.m.
