  • Yesterday, Villanova had a very strong start at Day 1 of the WECSSAA Track and Field Championships at the University of Windsor. Already, a total of 20 athletes have secured passage to the SWOSSAA Championships next week. Tatiana Kirincic was the first on the track to move on in the 300m hurdle event. And then the flood gates opened with six 100 meter sprinters moving on to Thursdays finals. Congratulations to all 3 midget girls, Chloe Gignac, Kristen Swaitoschik, and Jalyn Cirino for advancing, as welll as Junior girls Savannah Marra and Viansa Guitto, and Senior boy Connor Rosaasen. Later, in the heat of the afternoon,long distance runners Samantha Boussey, Jessica  Szawara, Andre Tomassian, and Taylor Conte all advanced in their 1500m races. Congrats to all the 1500m runners for posting some of their fastest times of the season.
 And while there was alot of excitement on the track, the field events certainly weren't quiet. 2 gold medals came out of the field events with Anca Enache winning the senior girls high jump and Midget girl Fina Pirrone walking away with the gold in the shot put event. It was a very good day in the jumping pits with all three midget girls moving on in the long jump. Congrats to Salina Secen, our silver medalist, and Mandy Brunet and Alyssa Ammonite. Other jumps qualifiers were: Madison Laramie in the Triple Jump, Alessia Fontana in the high jump, Keenan Sloan in the long jump, and senior boys Cooper Petyrysyn and Matt PeBenito, both in the high jump.
Dana Rosaasen was our final qualifier for the day in the field events with her 4th place finish in the javelin throw.
Athletes are reminded that we are practising tonight, including events that have already qualified for.

The bus leaves tomorrow at 8:30. Don't forget to bring your competition number from day 1. You'll need it to compete with.

·        The Senior Boys soccer team played in the quarter finals last night against the Catholic Central comets.  The boys kept up a good game and played cohesively throughout, seldom letting the Comets get to our end.  Nevertheless, the Comets got one up on the Wildcats before the end of the first half on a penalty kick. In the second half, Russell McLarty evened things up with a penalty kick, giving our boys some momentum to put more pressure on the Comet goalie.  Russell then took advantage of a nice pass and made a break-away to score a second goal, putting the team in high gear.  Dante Civiero kept up the energy with another great breakaway, scoring what would eventually become the game-winning goal for the Wildcats as the Comets were able to sneak in another goal just before the end of the game. Goal-keeper Thomas Swiatoschik did great work putting a stop to some solid kicks at the net.  Jon Grebe also defended furtively, getting to the ball at opportune moments to shatter hopes for the Comets.  All the boys deserve recognition for their great work in, once again, extreme weather conditions!  Congratulations, Wildcats!  Stay strong for the semi-finals this Wednesday against Riverside on their field.
