Track star wins cross-country championship

One of the Nanaimo Track and Field Club’s standouts is just as adept at cross-country running. Madison Heisterman won gold in the 3,000-metre race at the B.C. Cross Country Championships in Abbotsford last Saturday. The 12-year-old finished in 10 minutes, 49 seconds, which was 20 seconds ahead of her closest competitor.

“She was in great form during the race,” said Tyler Heisterman, track club coach, in a Queen Margaret's School press release. “Even with the terrible weather, she achieved the result she was really hoping for.”

Joel DeSchiffart took silver in men’s junior competition and Nate Seaman earned silver in the 11-year-old boys’ division. Carly Dickinson, Keaton Heisterman, Kaitlyn Watson, Thomas Grabher and Josh Bailey were other athletes with top-five finishes.
