Coyote Results

Toronto | by Bayshore News Staff  

Ontario Under 18 Track & Field Championships

Athletics Ontario Under 18 Indoor Track and Field Championships 

 at York University 

The Georgian Bay Coyotes sent 3 of their athletes down to put their hard winter training to the test.

Hannah Knight, a grade 11 Meaford student, started things off running only 4 seconds off her personal best time in the Girls 1500m.  Hannah placed 50th to stop the clock at 5:38.11.  

Ethan Pentland, a grade 10 Durham student and Meaford’s grade 11 student, Spencer Book, were up next.  Ethan ran an aggressive race and crossed the line in 10th spot.  His time of 4:20.17 was only 4 seconds off his best time.  Spencer was struggling with a bug on Saturday.  He started on pace, but fell off the pack after 800m.  His time of 4:43.22 was well off his best time.

Sunday was a much better day of competition.  Hannah Knight ran a personal best time in her U18 - 800m event.  Her time of 2:42.05 gave her 45th spot overall.  Spencer Book and Ethan Pentland were both in the fastest of 6 heats in their U18 - 800m race.  They both flew off the starting line with the pack, coming through their first 400m in 55-56 seconds.  They both dug deep on their 3rd of 4 laps to hold pace and finished with a strong sprint to the line.  Book placed 4th and Pentland 5th...each just missing their personal best times.
