Yesterday’s GBSSA meet was an epic finish to a great season for many track and field athletes. Next week marks the next level of competition for many marauder track athletes.
Congratulations to Sarah Kelly for vaulting (more like flying) to a personal best in senior girls pole vault. Nicole Smiljanic must be getting tired of gold medals, after easily winning senior girls high jump (again). Michael Marson moves on to OFSAA regionals next week for a solid fourth place finish in long jump and so does Carlin Nielsen for securing a spot in junior boys javelin. Amber Blight also secured a spot at OFSAA regionals next week in junior girls javelin. Nathan Giamattolla won third place in midget boys high jump and will also represent us at OFSAA regionals. Finally, congratulations to Nic Chapman for moving on to OFSAA regionals for his fourth place finish in senior boys high jump.
Thanks again to our timing volunteers, who ran the show yesterday– Shivanni, Chelsea, Jarod, Mitchell, Heather and Jordan.
Great work Marauders!

Yesterday afternoon was a glorious day for the MSS Boys’ Baseball team as they dominated St. T’s capturing the win with a score of 16-5. The boys came out strong in the first inning and pitcher, Tyler Cascagnette, quickly showed the St. T’s squad that he was “in the zone”. St. T’s did pick up a quick 2 runs in the second inning and MSS answered with 5 runs. St. T’s added 3 more runs in the 3rd and MSS answered…and they answered loudly…with 8 more runs. MSS was now up 13-5 by the 4th inning but decided to completely shutdown the Thunder by adding another 3 runs which put the 10 run mercy rule into effect and the game quickly came to an end. Solid pitching from Tyler Cascagnette and closer, Jake Flower. A big day on the bats with the whole line-up snagging at least one hit. Some hitting highlights include Jack Waltenbury’s monster base-clearing triple and Nic Chapman and Tyler Cascagnette each snagged doubles. Special mention to Carlin Nielsen and Noah Vout as they found a way on base every time they stepped up to the plate. Notable RBI’s from Brady Arts, Jack Waltenbury, Jake Flower, Tyler Cascagnette and Nic Chapman. This was a great win for the boys and Coaches Wickett, Bissell and Baldry couldn’t be happier. Wish the boys’ luck as they head into the first round of playoffs next week.
