·        Last weekend at a very competitive OFSAA regionals track meet, Villanova athletes did their best to move on to next weeks OFSAA competition in Toronto. And it did take their best, as most of the athletes posted season best erformances, and even that wasn't enough to move on in some cases. Maddy Michaud missed out on the hurdle final by 3 tenths of a second, as did Chloe Gignac by only 4 one hundreds of a second in the 100 meter and Savannah Marra by 3 tenths of a second. Chloe also missed out on the 200 meter final by only 7 one hundreds of a second.   And we we're having the same results in the field, where Fina Pirrone threw a personal best of 10.64 meters ( a distance that would have seen her on the podium at lasts years OFSAA) to place her 5th overall this year.  Anca Enache was one jump away from the top 4 in the high jump event. Mandy Brunet advanced to the finals in the 80 meter hurdles and ran a very fast time to place her 6th overall, only 3 tenths of a second away from qualifying for OFSAA. She did manage to break the draught though in the triple jump, where she leaped to 11 meters and a second place finish. Most of our distance runners put up season best times to finish their seasons. Congratulations Shaun Acrey, Andre Tomasian, Connor Sloan and Samantha Boussey. Noah Renaud advanced to the final in the 200m and then powered to a second place finish overall. Our final "almost there" race was the midget girls relay, where a seasons best time  left them 1 tenth of a second away from OFSAA. Well done Tatiana,Chloe, Jalyn and Kristen.
