McLuhan Track


On May 28th, McLuhan won the Senior Boys METRO title and were 3rd in the JR Girls with only 3 girls (Rasheeda Gurley, Brittney Dos Santos, and Marina Saleeb). Here is the most exciting news... 20 McLuhan TRACK athletes qualified for OFSAA this year!!! That means that 1/4 of the team qualified for OFSAA.  The boys on the METRO SR team were: Akeem Stephenson, Conor Thibeault, Ezana Wossen, Michael Zubieta, Gilberto Garcia, Ngige Gordon, and Erik Ferreira. 
It was a fantastic two days with so many ups and downs. Ending the day with a team title definitely helped us leave with smiles. I think the greatest moment of the meet was watching the 4x400m team run, and with 10m left in the race, the 4th runner, Ezana, looked back, realized they were going to make OFSAA and burst into a giant smile as he soared across the finish line running a 49.00s split over 400m. It might be one of my favourite moments of my coaching career thus far. They also smashed the school record and are now ranked in the top 8 at OFSAA with 3:26.00. 
All in all, great competition!
