Les Rapides compete in Ottawa
Intermediate students (Grades 7 and 8) from École secondaire catholique le Relais participated in their school board’s track and field meet, which was held in rainy, chilly conditions on May 28, in Ottawa.
Les Rapides had 40 athletes in the event, at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility.
Even with the unpleasant conditions, teacher and coach Marc Sauvé notes that the youngsters “were able to beat personal records and all showed determination and heart throughout the day.”
Mathieu Sauvé won male athlete of the day.
As a team, out of seven schools, le Relais’ Grade 8 boys placed first overall. The Grade 7 boys were second, and the girls (Grade 7-8) finished fourth.
