BROCKVILLE, May 22—Collectively, athletes from Kingston Area schools had a splendid day Friday on the final day of the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association track and field championships.

Individually, the performances shone just as brightly.

Kingston-area competitors won 40 of the 82 individual events contested on the final day of the two-day meet—almost half, even though KASSAA is just one of six associations that comprise EOSSAA.

Consider these other achievements:

• Holy Cross won its first eastern Ontario track and field title, capturing the team championship for AAA schools.

• Of the nine records set at the meet—outside the junior and midget girls shot put, where this was the first year using the three-kilogram shot so every performance was a new record—five were established by Kingston Area competitors.

This is not, Mark Magee, cautions, last year’s football team.

“It’s a dynamic all its own,” the coach of the varsity Kingston Grenadiers continued.

“I’ve tried to explain to the guys who were on last year’s team that we have to make our own identity and do our own thing.

“It’s not last year’s group, but it’s a good group.”

The biggest difference fans will see Saturday afternoon when the Grenadiers open their Ontario Varsity Football League schedule will be the size of the linemen. 

“The style of play will be the same,” Magee said. “It will be wide open. We’ve got two good quarterbacks who are going to be able to throw the ball, and we’ve got a couple of really good backs.

Three Kingston Area athletes were winners Thursday on the first day of the annual Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association track and field championships at Thousand Islands Secondary School in Brockville.

One of them, Regiopolis Notre Dame midget runner Brogan MacDougall, for the second week in a row, broke a meet record that had been held by her sister, Branna. Brogan’s winning time, 4 minutes, 44.72 seconds, was not only almost four seconds better than the time Branna posted in 2013, it was, by a little more than 15 seconds, the fastest time of any female competitor in any division of the 1,500 metres Thursday.
