Jeremiah Lauzon named ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month

Jeremiah Lauzon has been burning up the track this season.

The 18-year-old Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School student, who also runs for the Red Deer Titans Track Club has been recognized for his efforts.

Lauzon was named Tuesday as the Alberta Sport Development Centre-Central Athlete of the Month for May.

This weekend, he will represent the Raiders at the Alberta Schools Athletic Association Track and Field Provincials in Calgary. He will race in the 100 metre and 200m as well as the 4×100 and 4×400 relays. Last Wednesday, he captured wins in all four events at the zone track and field meet in Red Deer. He won the senior boys aggregate title in the process.

Earlier in May, running for the Titans he posted a 21.20 time in the 200m. That mark is the best among runners under in the age of 20 in Canada and second in the under 23 age group. It is the 12th fastest time of any 200m runner in the country.

Lauzon graduates from Lindsay Thurber and next year will run at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. SFU competes in NCAA Division II.
