Ryan Doucette - Chasing a Record
by Charles Reid

Athletes to watch

Among the athletes to watch at Saturday’s PEISAA provincial meet at Bluefield are Charlottetown Rural’s Danny Hill in the 100-, 200- and 400-metre runs and Ryan Doucette of Souris, who is chasing Dave (Eli) MacEachern’s provincial 400-metre record of 53:0 after running 53:07 at a meet in Florida.

Doucette is in Florida training for the 2009 Canada Games on P.E.I.

Also keep tabs on up-and-coming runners Cierra Gaudet (100, 200 and 400 metres) and Taylor McIntyre (1,500 and 3,000 metres). The inside track has the Summerside intermediate pair possibly running the fastest times in their races in the province.

Good Luck Ryan!
