OFSAA Regional Track & Field 2017

Northwestern had three athletes compete on Friday, May 26 – Day One of the OFSAA Regional Track and Field championships held at Western University in London.  The top four in each event qualify for the OFSAA Championships in Belleville next week.   The OFSAA West Region encompasses a large area from Kincardine to Kitchener, Woodstock, London, St. Thomas, Windsor, Sarnia and Chatham. It is one of the toughest Regions to place top fourand qualify due to its large population density and vast numbers of Track and Field Clubs and club athletes especially from the larger centres.
The Huskies turned in two personal best performances and one Northwestern Record on Friday!  Makayla Roy placed a very close 7th in the Midget Girls Shot Put throwing a personal best and Northwestern Record 10.28 metres (missing OFSAA by 29 cm).  Roy broke her own Northwestern Record of 9.70 metres by an impressive 58 cm.
Jason Guy placed 10th in the Junior Boys Shot Put throwing 12.83 metres.
Nicholas Dunsmore placed 14th in the Junior Boys Pole Vault jumping a personal best 2.30 metres.

Nicholas Dunsmore – OFSAA Regionals 2017

Three Huskies competed in four events on Saturday, May 27 (Day 2).

Grade 9 student Makayla Roy qualified for the OFSAA Track and Field Championships in Belleville next week by placing a fourth in a highly competitive Midget Girls Javelin event throwing a personal best and Northwestern Record of 30.09 metres (breaking her existing school record of 28.25 metres). Roy was only 1.04 metre from Silver. Roy will compete at OFSAA in Bellvile on Friday, June 2. Roy is peaking at the right time and has a great chance of making the OFSAA Finals (top 8 in the field of 24 competitors) especially if she continues to improve each week as she has been. Roy also placed 7th in the Midget Girls Discus throwing 25.47 metres – an outstanding personal best by over 2 metres (missing OFSAA by only 1.40 metre). Grade 10 student Ethan Reid has a fantastic day in the Junior Boys Javelin. Reid just missed the top 4 and placed a very close 6th in the Junior Boys Javelin throwing a huge personal best 46.32 metres (a personal best by over 3 metres). Reid missed qualifying for OFSAA by only 1.17 metre.

Grade 9 student Gabe Plain performed very well in his first OFSAA Regional appearance. Plain placed 9th in the Midget Boys High Jump clearing 1.57 metres. He had some great attempts at 1.62 metres.
