It was a successful two days of competition at SWOSSAA for North Star High School’s track and field team.


They came back with some outstanding results in spite of the heat and strong winds.


North Star will have eight athletes who will be advancing to OFSAA Regionals this year and they will be representing the school in 14 different events.


The team is under the direction of coaches Kristi Ryan and Tina Sharman.


Athletes advancing include Tyler Lamarche, who was awarded the SWOSSAA Top Female athlete for the novice girls division. This is an outstanding accomplishment. She placed first in shot put and discus and third for javelin.


“I’m very excited for the rest of the season,” said Lamarche. “I hope I can do really well. I know the other girls are good.”


Ava Mayrand earned two second place finishes at SWOSSAA, as she competed in shot put and discus. In the latter, she set a new personal best of 23.57m.


Leora Sharman placed fifth in discus and Rian Siddall placed fifth in pole vault.


On the track, Wakan Rainville sailed over the hurdles and finished second in the 100m hurdle event with a best time of 14.94 seconds and also qualified for the 300m hurdles thanks to a sixth place finish.


Sidney Myles qualified for 100m dash and triple jump by placing sixth in both events.


Emma Rudling pushed through injuries to qualify for the 3000m by placing sixth and also narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 1500m where she ran a strong race and placed seventh overall.


Lily Mulder set a new personal best in the 100m dash and earned third place in the 100m finals coming right off of a 400m race. Her efforts continued on the second day where she placed second in the 200m among a very fast group of senior girls.


Rhys Sharman, Rayah Crawford, Jonah Benoit, Jack Schmidtgall and Lauren Kelly placed in the top 10 in their individual events.


The Wolves’ novice boys 4x100 m relay team of Jonah, Luke and Elijah Rusenstrom, and Wakan Rainville, placed eighth overall and the Sr Girls 4x100m relay team of Celeste Andreychuk, Ada Faber, Sidney Myles and Taliya Robson, placed tenth overall.


The OFSAA Regionals are this week at the University of Windsor.
