The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - The News

Pole vaulter Nel­son Ce­cereu placed sev­enth at the Cana­dian In­terUni­ver­sity Sports track and field cham­pi­onships over the week­end in Wind­sor. The mem­ber of the Ot­tawa Gee-Gees and grad­u­ate of Char­Lan Dis­trict High School en­tered the March 14 com­pe­ti­tion with his sea­son-best mark of 4.63 me­tres and was ranked sev­enth.

He bet­tered that jump at the CIS meet, clear­ing 4.72 m on his sec­ond at­tempt. Ce­cereu ad­vanced to the next round, with the bar set at 4.82 m and seven ath­letes re­main­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion, but wasn’t able to get over it.

The win­ner of the event, David McKay of York Univer­sity, jumped a meet-best of 5.20 m.

The was Ce­cereu’s first time com­pet­ing on the na­tional univer­sity stage, de­scrib­ing it as “a good ex­pe­ri­ence to get fa­mil­iar with that level of com­pe­ti­tion.” He added, “A meet like that re­minds you of why you train and pre­pare so much through­out the sea­son, and that's def­i­nitely sat­is­fy­ing.”

The Univer­sity of Ot­tawa busi­ness stu­dent plans to take some time off the ath­letic cir­cuit in the short-term, though, to re­cover and fo­cus on school. How­ever, Ce­cereu will be back in train­ing soon enough, el­i­gi­ble for two more years of univer­sity com­pe­ti­tion.

He got his start at Char-Lan un­der coach Rory Black­ad­der.
