Sprinter Nicole D’Agnolo gets ready to start on the inside lane at the B.C. Summer Games last month in Nanaimo. She finished fifth there and fifth in 100-metres at the recent Hershey Track and Field Games national meet in Pennsylvania.

Posting the fastest 100 metres time in a large region gave Nicole D’Agnolo her second trip to Pennsylvania for an international meet.

D’Agnolo, 14, hopes to springboard from her fifth-place finish in the girls 13-14 division at the Hershey Track and Field Games on Aug. 2 into a medal win at this weekend’s national Legion track and field championships in Langley.

“I’m kind of nervous, but also excited to be competing,” she said.

The View Royal resident, who will attend Reynolds this year, will also run the 80- and 200-metre hurdles, the 4 x 100m relay and the 4 x 200m medley relay.

D’Agnolo qualified for Hershey at a Nanaimo meet earlier this season, posting a 100-metre time of 12.13 seconds. That was tops in a region that included B.C. and Alberta, plus the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. She served as flag bearer for B.C. in Pennsylvania and ran a 13.17-second time in her event.

“I definitely had more fun this year than last year,” she said. ” I went with a best friend both times, but I was able to meet more of the team this time.”

The speedy teen won a silver medal in the 4 x 100m relay and placed fifth in the 100m final with a time of 12.93 seconds at the recent B.C. Summer Games in Nanaimo.

At the provincial championships, D’Agnolo won gold in the 4 x 100 relay, was fifth in the 80m hurdles and made the final in the 100m.
