Track athletes found success at last week's SD&G track and field meet in Ottawa, and we have the details in the May 17 issue of The Glengarry News. Complete meet results can be accessed here.
Coach Robin Waller reports that the majority of the team achieved EOSSAA-qualifying results at the SD&G event. EOSSAA is set for May 18-19, in Brockville.
Heading into this week's EOSSAA track and field meet in Brockville, the pole vaulters at Char-Lan DHS are in fine form, with several athletes taking gold medals as SD&G champions. With no official events held as part of the SDGAA meet last week in Ottawa, the results were determined from other competitions for the Crusaders.
Among these is Mackayla Petrie (seen in photo here in a recent practice session), who enters EOSSAA as the SD&G champ.
"It looks pretty competitive this year," she says, adding that she's having plenty of fun in her last year of high school competition.
Rory Blackadder coaches the pole vaulters, while Clem Distefano coaches the other disciplines.
The May 17 edition of The Glengarry News has more details. Complete SDGAA meet results can be accessed here.
"Very happy with the performances of the students" is how coach Brandon Coleman characterizes the effort of his athletes at last week's SD&G track and field championships, which were held in Ottawa.
He says he is particularly pleased with the discus throwers, Jack Devries in the midget boys long jump, and Annie Bender in the junior girls 400 m race. Coleman also tips his hat to junior boy Caleb Douma, who won the 200 m and was second in the 100 m.
