A number of east end athletes are making plans to go to the OFSAA East Track and Field Championships in Belleville next week after placing in the top five during the opening day of the National Capital championships on Wednesday.

Maggie Scheunert, from Ecole secondaire Garneau, was a double event winner, coming first in both the open girls steeplechase and the senior girls 800 metres.

Scheunert placed 3rd in the junior girls 800 metres at the OFSAA East Region meet last year and failed to make the final at provincials after placing 14th in the heats. Her goal this year is to return to the provincial championships competing as a first year senior.

Regina Remadji is also hoping to get back to provincials. The Grade 10 Louis Riel student just missed out on the medals last year placing fourth in her specialty the 200-metres. She easily won her race on Wednesday, covering the distance in 26.38 seconds, but the time was well off her personal best which is 25.98 seconds.

Remadji has been dealing with a lingering hamstring injury which she suffered last fall.

"I've had a hamstring problem since October. I just tried. I didn't want to lose," said Remadji whose goal this season is to make it to the All Ontario Midget and Bantam Championships in July.

Remadji was among eight east end athletes who won their events on Wednesday. Oliver Ng from Colonel By won the midget boys triple jump with a leap of 11.43 metres. Benjamin Dufour from Louis Riel won the midget boys 300-metre hurdles in a time of 43.70 seconds.

The Samuel Genest duo of Isabelle Larocque and Yvan Ntivumbura won the junior girls javelin and junior boys high jump respectively. Larocque with a throw of 27.88 metres and Ntivumbura with a jump of 1.95 metres.

Adam Richardson from Colonel By managed to rebound from a disappointing sixth place performance in the senior boys 800 metres to win the 3000.

"I've been told once you have a really bad (race) you have a real fear not to lose the second one, so I put it on the line even more and I think that really helped me today to get back in the game," said Richardson after the race.

Gloucester High School's Farah Abdulkarim placed second in the senior boys 3000 metres after winning the open boys 2000 metre steeplechase.
