Tyler Kostiuk captured his second straight senior men’s javelin championship at the B.C. High School Track & Field Championships, held May 28-30 in Langley.
The Highland Secondary student-athlete tossed the spear 56.70m to take the gold medal over runner-up Jordan Ellingson of Maple Ridge Christian School, who threw 53.98m.
It was the second double-double of the season for Kostiuk, who also defended his Vancouver Island title earlier in May at Victoria.
Julia Alexander of Highland just missed a podium appearance in two events, finishing fourth in both Grade 8 girls 400m and 800m.
Ryosuke Katsuraki of G.P. Vanier came within seconds of qualifying for the senior men’s 110m hurdles finals, finishing ninth in qualifying.
