The Olds Koinonia Christian School Royals have collected another 2015-2016 championship banner.
Athletic Direcor Ken Terpstra says they were first in the team standings among the 1-A High Schools at the South Central Zone Track & Field meet on Tuesday, May 24th in Calgary at Foothills Athletic Park.

At Zones Houben was first in the junior javelin throw, while Parrott was second in intermediate high jump.
