The Hershey provincial track and field championship
The Hershey provincial track and field championship, featuring hundreds of children between the ages of nine and 14, was held Saturday at the Pearlgate Track and Field Complex in Mount Pearl. The United States and Canadian provinces are grouped into eight regions which send teams to the North American Final in Hershey, Pa. Results of the Newfoundland final are sent to the Atlantic Canada regional coordinator, who ensures that five athletes (a minimum of five and maximum of 25 representatives from the other three Atlantic provinces) from Newfoundland and Labrador are on the regional team to travel to Hershey Aug 2-5.
