The WCSSAA and District 8 seasons are in the books for another season, with CWOSSA events either underway or around the corner. Here are some strong performances from last week.
Ryan Taylor, Huron Heights: The Grade 12 student won the senior boys long jump and triple jump competitions at the CWOSSA track and field championship. While competing for Supreme Athletics, he won two medals at last year’s Legion youth championship.
Emily Huras, Waterloo-Oxford: The Grade 10 student (shown here) won the junior girls 1,500m and 3,000m races at the CWOSSA track and field championship. The accomplished runner, who trains with Laurel Creek, finished second in the fall at the CWOSSA cross-country championship.
Caleb Main, Preston: The Grade 12 student won the senior boys 800m race and the open boys 2,000m steeplechase at the CWOSSA track and field championship.:
Emily Buttinger, Resurrection: The Grade 12 student scored the winning goal in the dying minutes as the Phoenix scored a 1-0 win over the St. Mary’s Eagles in the District 8 girls soccer final. The multi-sport athlete will attend Boston College on a field hockey scholarship starting this summer.
Michael Halapir, St. Mary’s: The Grade 12 striker also scored the decisive goal in the dying minutes as the Eagles scored a 2-1 win over St. Benedict in the District 8 boys soccer final.
Cameron Schoeneweiss, Galt: The Grade 12 goalkeeper came out on the winning side of two penalty shootouts as the Ghosts won the WCSSAA senior boys championship. The 11th-ranked Ghosts beat top-ranked Forest Heights and second-ranked Eastwood to win the title.
Sebastian Angel, Eastwood: The talented striker, who moved to this area two years ago from Argentina, scored an absolute wonder-goal in the Rebels’ loss to Galt. He also had two goals in their semifinal win over WCI.
Breanna Senfner, Grand River: She was here last week too but it’s hard to ignore the five-goal outburst she had in the Renegades 6-2 win over Cameron Heights in the WCSSAA girls soccer final.
Natalie Armatage, KCI: The Grade 9 player was a force throughout and scored the game’s first try as the Raiders downed Waterloo-Oxford to win their second straight WCSSAA girls rugby championship.
Matt Fish, WCI: Another repeat performer, the Grade 12 student (pictured above) scored three tries as the Vikings captured their first WCSSAA senior boys rugby championship with a win over Preston.
