Brockerville & Howard Shine Yet Again

Ryan Brockerville of Marystown and St.John's native Julia Howard, both came up with big wins on Saturday at the Simon Fraser University open Spring track meet in Burnaby BC.

Competing in the 1500 meters, Brockerville ran an outstanding early season performance of 3 minutes 58.69 seconds, his first time under 4 minutes. Later in the day Brockerville ran a 1:57 helping his SFU team win the 4x800 meter relay over the University of British Columbia.

Howard, running for the Valley Royals Track Club in her first outdoor meet of the year, ran 2 minutes 5.11 seconds for her 800m win.
