The Saugeen Track and Field Club Under 18 Girls Relay Team consisting of Ava Moric (Hanover), Claire Rands (Tara), Kara Tichbourne (Meaford) and Brooklyn Quanz (Port Elgin) broke the Canadian records for Under 18, Under 20 and Under 23 age classes, as well as the Provincial record (all ages), for the Distance Medley Relay.

The Distance Medley Relay is a four-person track race made up of 1200m, 400m, 800m and 1600m.  This race, conducted in very rainy conditions in Hamilton, resulted in the Saugeen girls team shattering all of these existing records by 10 to 30 seconds.

The girls outstanding record setting time was 11:54.71 to cover 4000m.
