Sprint champ

Bobby Lefever of the Martin-Brower Blaze won the 60-metre sprint at the 2015 Harry Jerome Indoor Games, Feb. 7 at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Lefever, competing in the men’s 50-55 age division, won in a time of 8.68 seconds, edging Jorge Woods (9.01) of the Greyhounds.

The Blaze, a sprint team from Maple Ridge, also finished sixth in the 200-metre relay in the men’s open division, with a time of 1:42.10.

“I thought the team did exceptionally well in our first meet together,” Lefever said.

The Blaze next compete April 11 at the SFU Invitational Track Meet.
