A number of area high school athletes put their best feet forward at the National Capital secondary school track and field championships on Wednesday and in the process earned a ticket to next week's OFSAA East Region qualifying meet in Brockville.

Colonel By led the way with 18 of their athletes finishing in the top five in their respective events. Cole Dumelie was the only Colonel By athlete to qualify in multiple events, doing so in the midget boys 200 metres, 300-metre hurdles and pole vault, and both the junior boys and senior boys 4x100 relay teams placed third in their respective finals.

In terms of city champions, Louis-Riel led the way with six first place results on the first day of the meet. Japet Divita won the midget boys long jump and triple jump; Jonathan Rioux won the midget boys 3000 metres; Amin Dhouib won the junior boys 200 metres; Benjamin Beaudoin won the senior boys shotput and Annabelle Gagne won the midget girls pole vault, breaking an eight-year meet record in the process.

Divita will attempt to win a third city championship when he competes in the midget boys 100 metres on Thursday.

Other event winners from the east end include Kartik Sharma from Colonel By who won the senior boys pole vault; Sophia Barber from Gloucester High School won the midget girls javelin; Aja Penny from Sir Wilfrid Laurier won the midget girls triple jump; Corinne Aupont from St Matthew won the senior girls shotput; and Olivia de Couvreur from Sir Wilfrid Laurier won the midget girls discus.

De Couvreur also qualified for the OFSAA East Region qualifying meet in the javelin, where she placed third, and as a member of Sir Wil's midget girls 4x100 metre relay team which placed fourth.

Louis-Riel had high hopes heading into the relays on Wednesday with four teams vying to qualify for next week's East Region meet, but two of them, the midget boys and the junior boys got disqualified in their respective finals, leaving only the senior boys team and the midget girls team to move on with clean runs.

The senior boys squad of Bedi Ndinsil, Joel Roy-Couvillon, Jibril Jama and Pierre-Andre K-Mawka placed sesond in their final, and the midget girls team of Joanelle Barbon, Olivia de Couvreur, Riley Arseneau and Jaslyn Beairsto placed fourth in their final.

Only the top five entries in each event will get to move on to next week's East Region meet in Brockville where they must finish in the top four to qualify for provincials.
