Willing was able with shot put

Tasha Willing of Chilliwack won silver in U18 shot put at the Legion National Youth Track and Field Championship Sunday, with a best throw of 13.20 metres. Willing is from Valley Royals track and field club. Chilliwack track and field had no representatives at the meet, citing their closed track as a factor.
