Ready for launch

Chemainus Secondary Grade 8 athlete Hannah Tuplin throws a shot during the second day of the Central Vancouver Island Track and Field Meet at the Cowichan Sportsplex last week, including public and private schools from throughout the Cowichan Valley and Gulf Islands. Grade 8 students were battling to be the best in their district, while Grade 9s were hoping to qualify for Islands. Older athletes qualified for Islands regardless of their results at Central Islands.
