It was an exciting meet yesterday as Team Ontario geared up to face off again Team Quebec in the 8th edition of the annual U16 Dual Meet! We had 50 athletes named to the team earlier this week, along with 5 coaches.
After resulting in a tie last year, both teams were out to win. They day kicked off with 60m Hurdles, and a variety of field events, where the teams were sharing the success.
Going into the final two events of the day, things were tight. Team Quebec had the lead 215-212, and race walk was up next, with the 4x200m relay following, to close out the meet. Our team put up a great fight, but at the end of the day, Team Quebec walked away with the trophy.
The final score was Team Quebec – 289, and Team Ontario – 256. Congratulations again to both teams on your incredible efforts!
A special thank you to the five coaches, who volunteered their time to lead the team; Michael Lavigne, Chris Timm, Laura Sivers, Justyice McInnis, and Darl Sutherland.
