Courtney started doing track with her local club, the Northeast Alberta Track Club when she was in grade 9. Her brother and sister were both on the team and encouraged her to join. She wasn’t expecting to like it, but was immediately hooked and her interest in the sport grew quickly. She has now been doing competitive track for 7 years. She typically sticks to the Long Jump and Triple Jump but can occasionally be found sprinting just for fun. She truly enjoys all aspects of Track and Field events.
Her first coach, Reg Green, guided her into long jumping. She made note on the fact that he was a huge reason for her success throughout high school, and was a major factor in her decision to pursue track into university.
“He always took special time to work with me and I still keep him updated on every meet I do.”
