Summer Recap

SummerSixteenHeader

 

 

The summer season ended with a bang at the recent Outdoor Provincial Championships at York University. It was a season to remember and likely the most successful one in the ten year history of the club.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work from our athletes and the many sacrifices from the parents and coaching staff.

For that, we thank you for making our club, the great family that it is.

There were so many highlights from this past season that it would be an incredible task to include every single accomplishment.

Since the High School Championships, our junior athletes had been busy competing at Elementary School Championships throughout the GTA.

A special shout out went out to our very own; Kynu Samuel. Kynu won the 800 meters at the Toronto District championships and set a City Record for grade four boys.

The club then travelled south of the border to Ohio and Pennsylvania and brought home an impressive collection of medals and trophies. From that point, the club competed well at various local meets in preparation for the Provincial Championships.

This past July 23-24th 2016, our club finished third overall in the team standings at the Provincial Championships with our athletes bringing home 9 gold medals, 6 silver and 5 bronze. In doing so, we had outstanding performances from Cahjay Warwick, Naomi Layne and Jasiah Swaby.

These athletes were double gold medallists in their respective age categories.

Cahjay won the Peewee Boys 100 meters and long jump, Naomi won the Atom Girls 200 and 400 meters and Jasiah swept the Senior Girls 100 and 200 meters.

Nicole McKenzie and David Hurst both captured gold medals in their respective 400 meter events and the Tyke girls sprint medley relay team also brought home the gold.

Some of our athletes went one step further and set provincial records as well:
• “Superman” Cahjay Warwick flew to a provincial record in the Peewee Boys long jump.
• Jadon Rose set a Provincial Record for first year Senior Boys in the 100 meters and
• Our Senior Girls and Boys broke both provincial records in their respective Sprint Medley Relays.

We are proud of all of our athlete’s accomplishments but please remember…

“The important thing in life is not victory but combat; it is not to have been defeated but to have fought well.” – Pierre de Coubertin

Enjoy the rest of your summer holidays and we will see you soon.
