Cometes edge Dragons in the relays
by Randy Pascal

The best race of the day, Monday, at the gathering of the CSCNO (Conseil scolaire de district catholique du Nouvel-Ontario) grade 7/8 track and field meet, might well have been the battle that was waged for the overall aggregate banner.

The Jean-Paul II Comètes from Val Caron needed a second place finish in both relay races at the end of the day, slipping past the Ste-Thérèse Dragons 104-102. Lending a helping hand, big time, to the J-P II victory was the work of grade eight sprinter Caleb Rainville, breaking the tape first in both the 100m (12.73) and 200m (27.09) races.

“I prefer the 100m, there’s less running,” said Rainville with a smile. “There’s not much difference in strategy. I just sprint and don’t stop.” Heading to E.S.C. l’Horizon in the fall, Rainville hopes to mix in some baseball and track, along with his busy schedule in hockey.

He will be joined, as a member of the Aigles family, by 400m champion Greg Mrochek of Ste-Thérèse, little surprise given the family involvement of his cousins during their time at Horizon. Blowing away the field with a time of 1:01.36, more than six seconds ahead of the second place finisher, Mrochek was pleasantly surprised, considering he had never raced at this distance before.

“I started off pretty quick, and tried not to look back,” said the 13 year-old multi-sport talent. “On the last corner, I got a little nervous when one guy creeped up on me, but it all worked out when I started sprinting.”

Only three other athletes joined Rainville in earning more than one first place ribbon, with André Larocque (Alliance St-Joseph) grabbing bragging rights in both the 800m and 1500m distances, Isabelle Scratch of Félix-Ricard doubling in the long jump and high jump, and Amber-Ann Jacques (Jean-Paul II) finishing first in the 200m and 800m.
