St. Matthew High School's Keira Christie-Gallaway leapt to a gold medal in the midget girls long jump at the OFSAA East Regionl track and field meet on Thursday. She would go on to win a second gold medal in the 200-metres and a silver in the Errol McGihon/Ottawa Sun

Gold was a scace commodity for local athletes competing at the OFSAA East Regional track and field meet on Friday.

Only five area high-schoolers managed to secure the precious medal at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility, with St. Matthew High School's Keira Christie-Galloway striking paydirt in both the midget girls long jump and the 80-metre hurdles.

Alexia Lamothe from Cairine Wilson Secondary School lowered her personal best time for the second straight week to win gold in the senior girls 100-metre hurdles; Ian White from Colonel By Secondary School won gold in the midget boys 200 metres; Claudia Caird from Garneau won gold in the midget girls 100 metres; and Gloucester High School's Farah Abdulkarim took home the top prize in the open boys 2000 metre steeplechase.

Lamothe and Abdulkarim also won silver medals in the senior girls 400-metre hurdles and the senior boys 3000-metres respectively, while Christie-Galloway won a bronze medal in the midget girls 200 metres to go along with her two gold.

All five athletes will be looking to medal in the OFSAA provincial high school championships in Mississauga next week. They'll be joined by 14 other local students who managed to qualify for the provincial meet by finishing in the top four in their particular event. Among them will be seven silver medalists from the regionals including a pair of Garneau Hih School students. Maggie Scheunert placed second in the open girls 1500-metre steeplechase;and Steven Nkusi accomplished the same feat in the senior boys high jump.

The other silver medalists included Samuel Obiang from Louis-Riel in the midget boys shotput; Felix Robillard, also from Louis-Riel in the junior boys 3000 metres; Thomas Saville from Cairine Wilson in the junior boys 800 metres; and Bedi Ndinsil from Louis-Riel in the junior boys 400 metres.
