9 New Club Records This Outdoor Season!

Some of the crew at Legion Nationals in Sydney, NS

Our season came to a quick end a few weeks ago with the AO U14/U16/U18 Championships in Windsor and the Legion National Championships in Sydney, NS.

We had 1 athlete, Zach McPhee, make Team Ontario for Legion Nationals, coming from our strong endurance group and racing the 3000m and 2000mSC. He finished 4th and 6th, respectively. Daniella Beckett was our lone medal winner, taking home silver in the U16 girls pole vault with a vault of 2.90m. Owen McDonald broke the U18 Dec Pole Vault record, with a vault of 3.90m, ultimately finishing 5th overall.

The trip itself was a fun one for the athletes, parents and coaches that attended. Hotels were scarce in Sydney and our group that committed to going kept on growing, forcing us to seek alternate arrangements. Turns out Sylvia's friend had a cottage not too far away, so a handful of athletes stayed at the cottage and a team bbq was arranged 1 night for all to attend, with an intense game of spoons and sign making!

A week earlier, our U14/U16/U18 athletes were down in Windsor for AO's to close out the provincial championship series. We picked up 16 medals, with Ella Caponcini leading the way with 2 golds (80H and 200H) and 1 silver (HJ). I am happy to report London Western has officially won the outdoor team title! We are back-to-back overall champs, having won this past indoors, as well. Congratulations to our athletes and coaching staff for all of your efforts. Let's make it a 3-peat this coming indoor season! Details on how everyone performed in both meets can be seen below.

Intense game of Spoons!
