A trio of athletes from the North Star Wolves track and field team advanced to last week’s OFSAA track and field meet in London.


Wakan Rainville became the first OFSAA medalist in the two-year history of North Star High School as he won bronze in the novice boys 100m hurdles. He took second in his heats to qualify for the finals. The final race saw him achieve a time of 14.24 seconds, which was a personal best for Rainville.


“It was a lot different,” said Rainville, of the OFSAA experience. “It was more fierce.”


Rainville added he was nervous going in but concentrated on his race and got the job done.


Tyler Lamarche competed in both the novice girls discus and novice girls javelin events.


Lamarche finished fourth in the girls discus event, losing out on a medal by a mere five centimeters.


In the javelin competition, Lamarche finished 15th overall. A strong final throw improved her overall ranking, the school noted on its social media feeds.


“It was a great way to start the season,” said Lamarche, who will compete in other meets including a national one as part of a club track program.


It was also a good final track and field season for Lily Mulder, who finished third in her heat in the 200m race en route to a tenth place finish overall. She competed in the senior girls division and it was her fourth year on the track team at both General Amherst High School and North Star High School.


Mulder will resume her education in the fall at West Texas A&M, where she received a softball scholarship.


“It was a good way to end it,” said Mulder.


Mulder added the track and field team has grown throughout her four years of high school and believes it is in good hands with the younger athletes such as Rainville and Lamarche and the rest of the team.


The three athletes extended their thanks to coaches Kristi Ryan, Tina Sharman and Jen McKinnon, as well as their teammates, for their efforts throughout the season.
