Kelvin High School is officially a track-and-field dynasty.
When the Manitoba provincial track and field championships came to a close Saturday evening, it was the Kelvin Clippers who stood atop the mountain as the province’s most athletic school. Kelvin was awarded the aggregate team banner, which is awarded to the school with the most overall points in all events. It’s the third year in a row the Clippers have stood on top of the podium with the banner.
Grade 12 Kelvin athlete Max Speiser was a big help in his school claiming the top prize, as he finished the three-day event with three medals — gold in the 4x400 metre relay, bronze in the pentathlon and another bronze in high jump. The 17-year-old said him and his teammates came into the week expecting to repeat as champions.
