Acton's Kaitlyn Andrews once again turned in dominant performances in her events at one of the top track and field meets for teenagers in Ontario on Saturday, the Father Redmond Classic at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke. The 17-year-old Andrews, who has accepted a scholarship to Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas, is not only looking to defend her Ontario Federation of Schools Athletic Association (OFSAA) titles for the senior girls' shot put and discus in early June, but she's set to crush the standing provincial-best marks. Andrews' toss of 13.80 metres in the shot put on Saturday would have broken the current OFSAA best by half a metre and was easily good enough for a gold medal in soggy conditions at Centennial. She was also over 12 metres better than the runner-up in the discus with a throw measuring 39.66 metres, which is well short of her personal best. The OFSAA finals will be held June 1-3 in Toronto. Several other Acton Bearcats competed at the Father Redmond Classic, including J.D. Hartnagle, who earned a silver medal in the senior boys' shot put and bronze in the discus. Hartnagle recorded a toss of 12.73 metres in the shot put and 33.11 metres for his discus throw. Teammate Daniel Kearns threw 29.80 metres in the senior boys' discus, good for sixth place, and came in 11th for the shot (10.48 m). Cameron Shortt finished sixth in the midget boys' 800-m run in 2:23 and was seventh in the 1,500 at 4:44.15. Matt Bigg placed sixth in the junior boys' 800 in 2:16. In the open girls' triple jump, Acton's Jaimi Fellows was 14th (8.41 m), Ashley Macpherson placed 16th (8.36 m) and Rachel Amirault finished 18th (8.22 m).
