The following are Red Hawks results for this year’s COSSA track and field championships from May 13. The top-six finishers advanced to the East Regional Championship which is one step removed from OFSAA. With HHSS being part of the hosting region for the East Regionals the Hawks were awarded the extra qualifying spot – normally top five advance.
Leading the way for the Hawks was Emma Casey and Grace Judge who both won their respective categories. Casey threw 29.87 metres to win the senior javelin throw while Judge finished first in the 100 metre dash visually impaired category. Judge also finished third in shot put ambulatory category.
Senior boy Shawn Walker performed well enough to hit the podium twice with a second place in the 400 metre dash and then a third place in the 200 metre dash.
Steeplechase competitor Isaac Little did more than survive his 2000 metres as he finished his race in 6:45.89 for second place.
