Athletes from 31 towns including Airdrie and Cochrane, came together to represent Zone 2 at the Alberta Summer Games in Leduc.
Coming in third place overall, Sheri Willson with Alberta Sport Connection, says although Zone 2 is comparable in size, they had to beat out two cities.
"For them to win the medals they did they did was phenomenal; they did a really, really good job. That was definitely an improvement from the games prior to."
Zone 2 not only did well in the medal standings winning 23 gold, 50 silver , and 47 bronze, but also came away with the 'Spirit of the Sport Trophy'.
Wilson shares that is a pretty big deal. "It is for the zone that shows the most amount of sportsmanship throughout the weekend. It is voted upon, so not something you just win. It is voted upon by the volunteers, by the technical officials, by the commission staff, so it is really something when the kids really show it out out on the playing field or back in behind in the accommodation site they really are showing the support to everybody else not just themselves."
The Alberta Summer Games was successful not only for the athletic ability displayed, but the organization as well.
"The volunteers were phenomenal, we had good weather a little bit of rain here and there but that was okay. We had quite a few records broken on track (Alberta Summer Games records) so that was exciting to see and overall the games were fantastic."
While the committee does their last minute wrap up, the group is looking forward to the 2018 Alberta Winter Games in Fort McMurray and the 2018 Alberta Summer Games in Grande Prairie.
