Cassaundra O'Brien

Coach

I have been with PGTF for the past 10 plus years as a coach, athlete and a member of the board. I grew up in Quesnel where I was a track and field athlete, specializing in the throws, for Correlieu Secondary School under Pat Marsh. My favourite throws are the hammer and discus throws. I am trained in sport coach and club coach. I have taken training in wheelchair athletics with specific attention to seated throws. I love track and field and believe in its ability to make any individual stronger as an athlete and an individual.

Lauren Matheson

Coach

I have been a member with the track and field club since 2008, spending 9 years as an athlete, and being a junior development coach since 2012. As a junior development athlete, I ranked 5th place for the BC Athletics All Time Top Ten Performances in the 11 year old girls 60m dash category. In 2012, I ran the fastest 13-year-old girl 200m time for that year in British Columbia. With my 200m time in 2012, I broke a 32 year old record with The Prince George Track and Field Club for the fastest time that a 13 year old girl has ran while representing our club. In 2013, I attended the Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships for the 100m dash. I also qualified for these Championships in 2015 after taking a year off due to my scoliosis surgery. I attended the 2018 BC Summer Games as one of the assistant coaches for Cariboo-North East (Zone 8). Currently, I am Club Coach trained in Sprints/Hurdles, Endurance, and Jumps.
