Almost half SAC’s Track & Field athletes qualified for the Metro Regional Championships in two weeks, held in Oshawa the past May 11 and 12.
- JB Graham Cassar qualified in three individual events after winning 100m hurdles and triple jump and placing second in long jump
- JB Noah Hulton won double gold in high jump and long jump
- the small but mighty MB duo of Cole Nip and Luke Burleigh represented well, winning high jump and triple jump, respectively
- SB Conor Woodroffe anchored a solid OB 4 x 400m relay team (with Eric Dietterle, Ryan Jamieson, Callum Murphy) that placed third overall. Conor also stepped up big time for our SB 4 x 100m: He replaced an injured Adre Simmonds and helped the team place third and qualify for Metros.
-Despite suffering a hamstring injury in the final, SB Andre Simmonds placed second in the SB 100m, and teammate Jake Edwards ran a personal best to qualify 4th
-SB Callum Murphy laid down a monster jump of 6.68m to place second in long jump
-After taking a vicious cheese slice to the face, SB Douglas Chen-Young placed 4th in shot put, to go with his 2nd-place finish in discus
-Other qualifiers on Day 2 and Day 3 were MB Neebeesh Elliott (4th in javelin) and SB Sebastian Giorgio (3rd in discus)
The CISAA pole vault championship was hosted at SAC May 9, ahead of the Ottawa meet.
In the Senior Division, Callum Murphy took home the gold medal, just missing a vault at 3.85m (which would have been a new school record). Joseph Yazdani took the silver medal with Josh Mwinyoglee grabbing the bronze. All three qualify for OFSAA regionals.
In the MGT division, a jump off between Neebeesh Elliott and Cole Nip decided the gold medal, with Neebeesh vaulting a personal best of 2.35m. Cole also PB'd and so did Artem Kotchanov, who took home the bronze. All three qualify for OFSAA regionals.
