St. Michael CHS Students Qualify for Special Olympics Provincial School Championships

Jillian Simpson, Ben Sunderland and Matthew Cadney (pictured below), three students from St. Michael Catholic High School, have qualified for the Special Olympics Provincial School Championships! They will participate in track and field events such as the 50m, 100m and 200m as well as shot-put and standing long jump.  Special Olympics Ontario’s focus is to facilitate sports training, education and athletic competitions for high school students who have varying abilities. In its 3rd annual Four Corners sports series, over 1,000 secondary students participated in either soccer, bocce ball, track and field or basketball events held across the Province.

Of the over 200 teams that participated in these events, only 48 qualified for the Provincial Championships taking place in Toronto this coming June 4th and 5th. Good luck to them and congratulations! You can follow their results on the Four Corners Special Olympics Ontario website: http://fourcorners.specialolympicsontario.ca/provincials or through via their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SOOfourcorners. The opening ceremonies will also be televised across the province on June 4th at 7 p.m. through Rogers Television. Jillian Simpson will be the flag bearer for St. Michael CHS! Go Mustangs!
