Christie-Galloway Breaks OFSAA Record

In may have only been the third track event of the day at the OFSAA Track and Field Championships, but that didn’t stop Kiera Christie-Galloway from running the fastest 100m hurdles race in OFSAA history.

The grade 11 student at St.Matthews High School in Orleans eclipsed Perdita Felicien’s 18 year old record with a 13.33 second run in the heats before winning provincial gold in a time of 13.57.

Also picking up OFSAA gold on the second day of competition was Sharelle Samuel of Ashbury College. After setting a personal best in Thursday’s heats, Samuel put together another lifetime best performance in the junior girls 400m final, winning in 55.20 seconds. The grade ten student then followed up that performance with a new personal best in the long jump, 5.43m, to pick up her second gold of the day.

Also picking up medals in the field were Lexi Kundlace, who cleared 1.60m in the midget girls high jump to finish third. Bounding her way to the silver medal was Megan Miaro, who moved to seventh in club history with her 11.73m leap.

Back on the track, grade nine student Ben Robinson of Immaculata sped his way to silver in the midget boys 100m dash. Meanwhile grade 12 student, Shyvonne Roxborough of South Carleton, was third in the senior women’s sprint race, finishing in 12.00 seconds.

Rounding out the medals on day two were Tom Saville of Carine Wilson who picked up bronze in the open boys 2000m steeplechase. Also, Mei Mei Weston of Glebe was a silver medalist in the junior girls 1500m in a lifetime best 4 minutes 29.59 seconds.
