The local track and field season came to an end last week with board-wide meets taking place for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic School Board and the two French-language boards which ran a combined meet.

The three girls were then joined by Marika Schryburt to win the 4x100 metre relay for 10-year-old girls.

Renée Marleau from École élémentaire catholique Arc-en-Ciel won the long jump for 11-year-old girls; and Alexa Danis from Des Pionniers in Fallingbrook placed first in the shotput for 11-year-old girls.

Among the boys, Antwaan Miller from Arc-en-Ciel paced first in the 200-metres for 10-year-old boys and second in the 100-metre dash; Frédèric Girard from L'Étolie de l’Est won the 400-metre final for 11-year-old boys; Justin Knight from De la Découverte placed frst in the 800-metres; Adrien Laflamme from L’Etoile de L’Est won the high jump for 11-year-old boys; and Mathis Mainville from Découverte placed first in the shotput.

The Ottawa Catholic School Board held their intermediate track and field championships on June 15 with St. Peter High School managing to bring home several first place ribbons, in-cluding in both the Grade 7 and Grade 8 girls 4x100 metre relays; the Grade 7 girls 400-metres; the Grade 7 girls long jump; and the Grade 8 girls 200-metres.

The Ottawa District School Board held its board-wide champ-ionships on June 16 with a number of local athletes picking up first place ribbons.
