May 28, 2019 No Comments

What a wonderful two days of action at the EOSSAA Track & Field Championships in Brockville! The Garnet & Gold crew have 22 athletes headed for Belleville Thursday and Friday as a result of their top 5 finishes. 

Lilly Jackson and Madison Armitage led the charge as they won their two individual events and were part of the record-breaking Junior Girls 4x100m Relay team and the Open Girls 4x400m Relay team.

Lilly won the Junior Girls Long Jump with a leap of 4.98m setting a new School Record in the process (the old record was set by Betty Tyrie in 1979). Lilly also won the 80m Hurdles with a sweet time of 12.68s.

Madison won the Midget Girls 100m and the 200m dash. Her time of 26.33s betters her School Record that she set last week.

Lilly and Madison were joined by Skyla Campbell and Mollie Grabe to run a blazing 50.59s in the 4x100m Relay. This time breaks the EOSSAA record by almost 2 seconds and moves them to within 0.22s of the 2003 record set by Kailee Marks, Sarah Krupovich, Laura Guetta and Ashley Duncan)

Mollie had a great Junior Girls 100m dash as she finished 3rd. Skyla qualified in the Junior Girls 200m by finishing 4th.

Madison, Skyla and Lilly were joined by Dale Kenny to qualify in the 4x400m Open Relay with a gritty 4th place finish and a 10 second PB.

Dale had a wonderful meet as well as she finished 2nd in the Midget 1500m and 2nd in the 3000m. Her time in the 3000m of 10:49.90 betters her time of last week by 15 seconds and lowers the School Record yet again.

Gavin Wheeler continues to serve notice in the throwing department. Gavin won the Midget Boys Discus and Javelin, and he qualified in the Shot Put with a 5th place effort.

Spencer Lewis also had a superb day in the field as he won the Junior Boys Shot Put and finished 2nd in the Discus. His team mate, Jaydon Blanchard, picked up a 4th in the Shot Put.

Mitchell McNeely set a new PB in the Midget Boys High Jump with a clearance of 1.60m and a gold medal to show for his performance!

Maggie Ford threw a beauty spear to finish 2nd in the Senior Girls Javelin.

Jadyn Fraser is heading back to the Regional Meet with a 3rd in the Senior Girls Shot Put and a 4th in the Javelin. Emily Callery finished 4th in the Shot Put to qualify as well.

Kyle Dolliver ran a very powerful race in the Junior Boys 100m Hurdles to finish 2nd. He then qualified in the 200m dash with a 5th place result.

Nick Kean has put all of his practice time to good use as he has qualified for two events: he finished 5th in both the Midget Boys 400m and the 300m Hurdles.

In the Pole Vault, Maverick Pretty won the gold as he vaulted a new PB of 3.05m in the Junior Boys event. Finn Gamble also set a new PB for himself with a vault of 2.55m to end up in 3rd in the Midget contest. Owen Perks got over 3.25m in the Senior competition to finish 4th.

Rounding out the qualifiers is the Open Boys 4x400m Relay team of Daxon White, Nick Kean, Kyle Dolliver and Cory Pignatel. They laid it on the line and ran a 10 second PB to finish in 4th place.

Thanks to all of the athletes and their parents for the support, camaraderie and effort over the past few months as we march deliberately towards the OFSAA event in Guelph in two weeks.

CPHS Track & Field – a little bit of Garnet and a whole lotta’ gold:)
