At the track meet for the 2015 Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA), UCC had more of its athletes qualify for the Metro Championships than ever before, in everything from high jump and javelin to the 100m, the 400m hurdles and the 3000m. The Metros determines the best of the best in Toronto among private, public and Catholic schools combined.
A strong performance at this meet led to UCC claiming the Senior Boys Championship Title for the first time in school history. Six athletes also qualified for the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) championships.
It’s no wonder that so many UCC boys do extremely well city-wide and provincially, given the team efforts boys demonstrate year after year at the CISAA championships – not only at the Upper School, but also the Prep, where boys are first introduced to track and field in Grade 4.
The Blues won the Under 10, Under 12 and Under 13 CISAA championships in 2015, as well as the overall team gold medal.
In a sport where there is a diverse offering of events, boys come together to work on fitness and proper technique. They also develop a camaraderie that serves them well in the other sports they play.
