Five U14 athletes with the Stratford Sabrecats Track Club were awarded 2021 All-Ontario status at the Athletics Ontario Awards Gala on Dec. 14-15.
They are: Abraham Bender, 12, Kaleb Dingman, 13, Myles Clinton, 13, Nola Ma, 13, and Andre Mollet, 13.
The following are their results at the Rising Stars Championships (provincial championships for U8, U10, U12, and U14 held in three regions).
Abraham Bender (sprints) - First 80 metres; Second 300 metres.
Kaleb Dingman (distance) - First 2,000 metres; Second 1,200 metres.
Myles Clinton (hurdles, distance) - First 80m hurdles; First 200m hurdles; Fourth 800m.
Nola Ma (sprints/hurdles) - First 80m hurdles; First 200m hurdles; Seventh 80m.
Andre Mollet (throws) - First discus; First javelin.
Ma and Clinton also competed in the Tetrathlon in the provincial Combined Events Championship. Nola was first and Myles second.
"We're very proud of the achievements, not only of these athletes, but of so many others as well," Sabrecats' coach Nathan Good told the Independent.
"As a result of their efforts, the Sabrecats placed third in the province in the U14 division. We were fourth in the U16 division. In the U12 division, we placed sixth with just two athletes competing. Chloe McCabe and Graeme Froud both placed first in all three of their events. As a small and relatively new club, we are very proud of these results," Good added.
Makayla Roy, who competes for the Brantford Track and Field Club, was also recognized as an All-Ontarian this past season.
The 20-year-old from Fullarton recently completed her first semester at the University of North Texas, where she's part of the Division 1 school's javelin team. She attended high school in Stratford.
