BOOST: A Year in Review

BOOST ATHLETICS YEAR END REVIEW

The month of September will mark the one-year anniversary of the Boost Athletics Club – and what a momentous year it was!

The year literally flew by with many milestones and accomplishments..

It seemed just like yesterday when Naomi, Nicole, Nyah, Nyla and Shai attended the first official Boost team practice.

Since then the team has grown and many of our athletes have shone on the Local, Provincial and National stage.

Much of this would not have been possible without the continued support from our families, friends, our track family and the parents who placed their trust and belief in us. Thank you all!

We look forward to year two where we continue with our commitment to Youth in the sport of Track and Field and move on to bigger and better things.

Gut-wrenching performances; well earned results! This was the theme of the day for our athletes representing their schools at South OFSAA regionals.

Katie Johnson ran a quick 3rd leg of the Junior women’s 4x100m relay while keeping the competition close and cleanly handing off to Nicole McKenzie. Nicole was able to bring it home for 1st place in their heat.

Nicole also ran the Midget women’s 200m and 400m. Hitting a PB in each event, she was able to capture the top spot in both sprints. Both Katie and Nicole represent St. Marcellinus Secondary School.

Kaycee Martin ran both the 100m and 80mH Midget women’s events. While the 100m did not work out as planned, Kaycee was able to advance to the 80mH finals and then finish 3rd overall with a huge PB. Kaycee represents Loyola Catholic Secondary School.

Shai Cuffy ran in the Junior women’s 4x100m relay and was able to run a strong 2nd leg helping her team secure a 2nd place overall. Shai also threw in the Midget women’s Javelin and was able to muscle out her best throw on her 6th and final throw to capture 4th spot. Shai represents Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
