St. Matt's hurdler sets new meet record, claims gold at OFSAA provincial championships

Keira Christie-Galloway missed out on setting a new meet record at the East Regional track and field championships last week thanks to a 2.4 k/hr tail wind.

Her time of 13.33 seconds in the senior girls 100-metre hurdles was a personal best, albeit wind-aided. On Friday, the Grade 11 St. Matthew High School student equalled the mark during her preliminary heat at the OFSAA provincial championships in Windsor, only instead of a tail wind she ran into a slight head wind. As a result, she entered the OFSAA record book, breaking the previous provincial high school mark held by Olympian Perdita Felicien by eight one-hundredths of a second

Bouyed by her record run, Christie-Galloway returned to the track for the final later in the day and easily won the gold medal in a time of 13.57 seconds, more than three-temths of a second ahead of Brittany Stenekes from Dundas Valley Secondary School.




It's the third medal in as many years for the National Capital champions, who have been to the provincial high school championships four straight years.

The had to settle for the consolation medal in 2014 after a second round loss relegated them to the bottom bracket, and then last year they were awarded the silver medal after making it all the way to the final where they lost to the Oakville Trafalgar Red Devils who won it all againg this year.

Wednesday's bronze medal game marked the end of the high school careers for graduating co-captains Rachel McCallan and Taylor Donato who were members of all for city championship teams.

But the tournament was a coming out party for Grade 9 additions Kaitlyn Rae, Emily Lacombe and All three girls have a shot at repeating the accomplishments of McCallan and Donato as they carry the torch forward into the future
