  • Villanova had a fantastic final day at the WECSSAA Track and Field championships, qualifying athletes in another 23 events plus 6 of our 7 relay teams.

The 4 by 100 meter relay teams started off the day right with all 5 teams moving on to SWOSSAA and silver was the colour of choice for Villanova teams. The midget girls, junior Girls, and senior boys teams all finish 2nd overall.
Next on the track were our steeplechase runners and they met the challenge of the barriers and water jump, with both of our girls, Keegan Sloan and Jessica Szawara, and one of our boys, Shaun Acrey, pushing forward.

The 100 and 200 meter finals saw Villi advancing 8 athletes into 11 spots for next weeks SWOSSA championships
. Congratulations:   Chloe Gignac, Jalyn Cirino, and Connor Rosaasen for advancing in both the 100 and 200 meters;     Kristen Swaitochuk, Viansa Guitto, and Savannah Marra for advancing in the 100m, and to Aryana Cirino and Noah Renaud for moving on in the 200m.
The other distance event for the day was the 800 meter race and once again Villanova athletes ran some personal best times to move out of WECSSAA. Connor Sloan and DJ Hall will both represent us at SWOSSAA next week.
The final races of the day saw our girls 4 by 4 team of Hannah and Aryana Cirino, Keegan Sloan and Chloe Gignac move along to SWOSSAA.
