Kingston-area athletes qualify for OFSAA track finals

June 7, 2013

All five Kingston runners competing in the 1,500 metres made it through the qualifying heats Thursday and into their respective finals Friday on the first day of the 64th Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations track and and field meet in Oshawa.

Foremost among them was Regiopolis Notre Dame’s Branna MacDougall, who won her heat and posted the second-fastest time in midget girls division, 4 minutes 54.75 seconds.

Heather Jaros of La Salle, at 4:49.01, was sixth among junior girls; Nicole Armstrong of Sydenham had the sixth-best time in senior girls division, 4:44.41; Ben Workman of Kingston was seventh among junior boys in a season-best 4:09.38 and his KC teammate, Cameron Linscott, was 12th among midget boys at 4:21.49.

Sydenham’s Wade Embury, a bronze medalist in senior boys 400 metres a year ago, had the best time in the heats this year, 48.70 seconds. He’ll take a five-meet winning streak into Friday’s final.

Jay Dearborn of Sydenham had the best finish among local competitors in yesterday’s field event finals. On his final attempt he threw the spear 51.25 metres, by 2.28 metres his best throw of the competition, to finish fifth in senior boys javelin.

The only other local athlete to make the final rounds in a field event was Napanee’s Leah Hill, who finished eighth in junior girls shot put.
