Louis-Riel's Bedi Ndinsil (605) and Luckeson Adeya (590) formed one half of the school's 4x400 relay which successfully defended the title the school has held for the past three years. The other team members are Vincent Moricz and Mathieu Payant. File photo

The Louis-Riel Rebelles track and field team had a banner day at the recent National Capital high school track and field championships, with 20 athletes qualifying in 35 different events for the upcoming OFSAA East Region meet.

The Rebelles were led by Japhet Divta who won the junior boys 100-metres, and then doubled up in the long and triple jumps to join St. Matthew High School's Keira Christie-Galloway as the only triple event winners from the east end.

For the second year in a row, Christie-Galloway won the 100-metres, 100-metre hurdles and long jump, only this time competing as a first year senior with other Grade 11 and Grade 12 student athletes.

Divta managed to do one better than Christie-Galloway, joining his Louis-Riel teammates Mathieu Payant, Enoc Enyeka and Aaron Bayelanga in winning the junior boys 4x100-metre relay.

Payant achieved individual success in the junior boys 200- and 400-metres, edging out Glebe Collegiate's Isaac Gaudreau by just 11-hundredths of a second to win the latter, to give him three first place performances on the day. He would have equalled Divta's total if not for a late injury that kept him off the Rebelles 4x400 open relay team. He was replaced by Maha Ali, who helped veterans Bidi Ndinsil, Luckeson Adeya and Vincent Moricz win the third 4x400 city championship in three years

The three Grade 12 seniors all finished in the top 10 in the individual 400-metre event. Ndinsil won the race after finishing second in the timed finals last year. Moricz placed fourth and Adeya was eighth.

Xavier Gervais (midget boys javelin), Oderah Pecore-Ugorj (junior boys shot put) and Jonathan Mukishi (senior boys triple jump) also won individual red ribbons for the Rebelles.

The Louis-Riel boys were joined by a trio of girls who achieved individual success at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility. Kadiatou Wann won the midget girls 80-metre hurdles and came second in the long jump; Annabelle Gagné won the junior girls pole vaulr to go along with a pair of second place finishs in the 100-metres and a third place result in the long jump; and Caroline Poirier won the junior girls 80-metre hurdles. Gagné and Poirier also won the junior girls 4x100 relay with Stephanie Lalonde and Fatoumata Fofama.

Half of Colonel By's individual event wins were captured by Cole Dumelie who came first in the junior boys 300-metre hurdles and pole vault, equally the feat he accomplished last year competing at the midget level. Kenzo Boulou Ebanda came first in the junior boys shot put, second in the discus and fourth in the triple jump. And Colonel By's fourth red ribbon came in the senior boys pole vault which was won by Kartik Sharma.

Other event winners from the east end include Michelle Ayotte from Cairine Wilson who won the junior girls 100- and 200-metres, repeating the same feat she accomplished at the midget level last year; Gisele-Lalonde's Leewinchell Jean won the midget boys 80-metre hurdles; Sebastien Tremblay from Béatrice Desloges came first in the midget boys discus; David Mwakatapanya from Sir Wilfrid Laurier won the senior boys long jump; Olivia De Couvreur, also from Sir Wilfrid Laurier, won the junior girls discus; and Gloucester High School's Sophie Barber took home first place honours in the junior girls javelin.

In total, 65 athletes managed to qualify for next week's OFSAA East Region championships in Belleville by finishing among the top five in their event. Louis-Riel will have the largest contingent with 19 athletes competing at regionals followed by Colonel By with 16. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Gisele-Lalonde will have seven athletes each in Belleville followed by St. Peter and Cairine Wilson with five each; Gloucester High School with four; and Béatrice-Desloges and St. Matthew with one each.
