Sandwich dominates OFSAA track and field, again

Source: Sarah Moore

For the third straight time the Sandwich track and field team accumulated more points than any other team and get the nod as the best in the province. "The kids have bought into the family atmosphere." said head coach Rob Moore. "It's been fun."

The OFSAA championships got off to a slow start in Ottawa with a couple of dropped batons during the junior and senior girls relay races. "It took them a little bit to bounce back the next day having to talk to them and pump them back up." Moore credits Jaela Bailey and Susan Adenitan for rebounding and lifting the team up. Bailey won silver in the 100 metres while knocking off a second off her personal best to take the silver in the 200m.

Adenitan won gold in the 100m by 1/100th of a second and bronze in the 200m.

The Sabres won the overall girls title and junior girls team title. In all, local team brought home 28 gold medals with Sandwich accounting for ten. Moore thanked Villanova's track and field coach Mike Baren for helping his team. "This was a difficult year for us too. We didn't have a track at Sandwich." Work began in mid-April on installing a new track which was finished this week. Below is the new and old track.

Ella Steel-Douglas won gold in the 80-metre hurdles, silver in the 200m and helped the Sabres win silver in the open girls 4x400m relay. Ruby Radovich took silver in the 400m hurdles while Annie Seagris claimed silver in the novice girls javelin throw.
