Vaughn Taylor capped off an outstanding season with another six gold medals.
Taylor was one of several members of the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club competing at the recent (July 22-24) B.C. junior development (ages 9-13) track and field championships at Kamloops’ Hillside Stadium. The meet was the last event of the season.
The 11-year-old Taylor took top spot in the 100, 200 and 600 metre races, as well as the 60m hurdles, long jump and high jump.
His medal count was just part of the Mustangs overall haul.
Joel Harrison, 12, won three gold, taking first in the javelin, shot put and 200m hurdles, as well as silver in the high jump, long jump and 80m hurdles.
Josiah Perovich, 10, won a pair of gold in the 600 and 1,000m races, plus a silver in the 100m and bronze in the 60m dash and the 60m hurdles.
Nine-year-old Nathan Demian won five medals, earning silver in the 100m and 600m runs and in the 800m race walk, and bronze in the 60m hurdles and high jump.
Not to be outdone, the Mustangs girls also contributed to the medal count.
Natalia Munro, 10, won gold in the 100m, long jump and 60m. She had a record-breaking run in that last event.
Mariana Martinez, 11, had a silver in the 800m race walk and won a trio of bronze in the high jump, 600 and 1,000m races.
