Under gloomy, wet conditions, the Dryden High School Track and Field team marked a golden performance at NWOSSA last week in Thunder Bay.

Seven gold medals, to be exact — three of which came via Andie Wood who claimed the distinction of the top midget athlete in the region with wins in the 1500m, 3000m and a new record in the 1500m steeplechase.

Sprinter Emily Plett grabbed gold in the senior girls 100m and 200m races.

Jake Wickstrom grabbed a win in the midget boys 3000 metre race.

On the field, Shane Kirton grabbed the senior boys javelin gold medal.

These four athletes will compete in OFSAA in Belleville, ON, June 7-9.
