Robin Bone won gold while setting a meet record in pole vault with a height of 4.13m. This is Robin’s third consecutive meet record this season.
The other three golds came from Caroline Ehrhardt, Joy Spear Chief-Morris, and Riley Bell. Ehrhardt won gold in the triple jump with a distance of 12.22m from a short approach, Chief-Morris won gold in the 60m run with a time of 7.61s, and Bell won gold while also achieving a personal best in the long jump with a distance of 7.22m, moving himself up from 5th place. Ehrhardt added an individual silver in the long jump with a distance of 5.49m.
The men’s 4 x 200m relay team of Mike Giorgi, Izzy Ogieva, Robbie Gallagher, and Anthony Dandie won silver behind Guelph University with a time of 1:30.36, while the women’s 4 x 200m relay team of Chief-Morris, Jen Barbon, Sarah Clancy, and Ehrhardt won silver behind the University of Toronto with a time of 1:42.84. Unfortunately, both 4 x 200m Mustang teams did not face the winning teams in their heats or the outcome may have been different.
Other silver medalists for the Mustangs were Ogieva in the 60 meter hurdle with a time of 8.08s, Daniel Gayle in the triple jump with a distance of 14.35m, Triphon Moodie in the 1000 meter run with a time of 2:29.20 and over a five second personal best, Gallagher in the long jump with a distance of 7.08m, and rookie Emilia Grala jumped a personal best in the high jump with a height of 1.70m. Giorgi also won silver, achieving his second medal and a personal best winning silver in the 60m run, while Ogieva and Chris Cauley tied for silver in the high jump with a height of 1.95m.
The level of competition was higher than in recent years and showcased that the OUA will be very competitive come championship time.
