Guelph Gryphons women, Windsor Lancers men crowned OUA track and field champions

Posted 5 years ago

The University of Guelph Gryphons women and University of Windsor Lancers men were crowned the 2014 OUA track and field champions on Saturday evening (Feb. 22) at the Toronto Track and Field Centre.
The Gryphons women's team have now won back-to-back banners and claimed it with a score of 150.5 points, 14.5 points ahead of second-place Toronto Varsity Blues and Western Mustangs. The Lancers finished fourth with 101.5 points; while the host, York Lions rounded out the top five teams with 69.
The Lancers re-claimed the men's banner, which is their 15th in the last 16 seasons. They finished the meet with 158 points, which was only five better than the Gryphons and 21 better than the host, Lions.
The Gryphons got out to an early start on day two as Sarah Dougherty won the weight throw with a distance of 17.22m. Shortly after, Katelyn Ayers won the 600m gold medal with a time of 1:31.92, which was her second gold of the championships.
On the men's side, the Lancers were led to victory largely by the efforts of Alex Ullman who struck gold in the 600m with a time of 1:20.48. He capped off the day by running anchor for a come-from-behind victory in the 4x400m relay, where the top three teams all broke the previous OUA meet mark. Their time of 3:17.24 now stands as the best time in the OUA championships, a record previously held by the Mustangs from 1993. Brandon Wilhelm also found the top of the podium, as his jump of 2.04m was good for gold in the high jump.
Another meet record fell on the second day of competition as York's Khamica Bingham lowered the 60m mark she set last year to a blazing-fast 7.23 seconds. Another record was nearly set in the men's 60m race with York's Dontae Richards-Kwok tying the 6.66 seconds initially put up by former York runner Desai Williams in 1983.
Their gold medals in the 60m were two of the six the Lions won on Saturday. Eric Brathwaite won his second gold of the weekend, this time in the shot put with a toss of 17.28m, finishing just ahead of teammate Umar Khan, who picked up the silver. Also in the field events, David McKay won his third straight title in the pole vault with a top height of 4.91m, and Richard Jansen finished in first place in the triple jump with a distance of 14.46m.
Rounding out the hosts gold medals was the women's 4x200m relay team, which finished atop the podium with a time of 1:39.95, the fastest mark in the CIS this season.
The Varsity Blues were also busy on the top of the podium striking gold in the high jump (Katia Vasilyeva, 1.72m), 1500m (Gabriela Stafford, 4:28.71), and the women's 4x400m relay (3:45.50).
The Gryphons won gold in the men's 4x200m relay with a time of 1:29.01, edging out the Lions who were 16 tenths of a second behind. Adding to the Gryphons' gold medal count was Ross Proudooft who ran 3:49.56 in the 1500m.
Rounding out the OUA champions on Saturday was Caroline Ehrhardt of the Mustangs who won the triple jump with a leap of 12.83m, which was her second gold medal of the championships.
In addition to the hardware won at the OUA championships, the top two finishers from each event, as well as all student-athletes who surpassed the automatic standards, have qualified for the CIS championships, which will take place March 6-8 at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.
