The Mustangs 53 local athletes earned 10 gold medals, seven silver and three bronze at the end of the day.

The 10-year-old boy’s earned a second place finish overall in their bracket while the 13-year-old girls finished fourth.

Ben Vanderhorst, Noah Louwerse, Joey Adams and Jacob Vanderhorst were multi-event medalists.

Thirteen-year-old Aldergrove resident Maiya Brunoro had an outstanding performance throughout the entire championship.

Brunoro earned four gold medals in four individual events including long jump and the 200m, 300m, and 800m races.

“It was the biggest track meet I’d been to,” said Brunoro, “there were lots of people. It was really fun because I got to place and meet so many new people.”

The Langley Mustangs will host the Pacific Invitational on Father’s Day weekend June 14, 15, and 16 at McLeod Athletic Park.

Athletes from ages 6 to 86 will be participating in a variety of track and field events throughout the weekend.
