Julia Clark, also of EJ Dunn, placed 17th in the 100 m dash prelims with a time of 13 second but didn’t qualify or the final.

At the senior championships, Luke Bradley from Alberni District Secondary School finished fifth in the men’s shotput with a throw of 13.5 m. He also finished 10th in the men’s discus. And he competed but didn’t place in the hammer throw because he didn’t attempt a legal throw.
