Char-Lan pole vaulters and more

Two pole vaulters from Char-Lan claimed ti­tles, though tech­ni­cally they didn’t come at the SD&G meet. Since the event isn’t held there, the ath­letes – Bren­nan Seguin and Fiona MacDon­ald – won based on best jumps at ear­lier meets.

Seguin, a re­peat vic­tor, placed first in the se­nior boys class, with a jump of 4.45 m. He says that’s his sea­son best, but low for him ca­reer­wise, some­thing he is work­ing to im­prove upon head­ing into EOSSAA.

MacDon­ald, who coach Rory Black­ad­der says has a great shot at mak­ing it all the way to OFSAA, con­tin­ues to de­velop her tech­nique. She won the midget girls crown, with a 2.20 m best re­sult.

The Grade 9 stu­dent-ath­lete also tri­umphed in the midget girls 800 m race (2:52.82).

Ju­lia Richard nabbed wins in the se­nior girls 200 m race (27.02 s) and triple jump (11.08 m), and gar­nered sec­ond in the se­nior girls 400 m hur­dles com­pe­ti­tion (1:11.80).
