The annual Team Ontario versus Team Quebec for the midget age group [grade 10 and under], will be held in Toronto on Saturday, February 17th. Athletes were selected across Ontario for the various track and field disciplines, including distance, sprints, hurdles, jumps and throws.
A selection meet was held in January at York University's indoor 200m banked track facility. Based on the athlete's ability to hit select times or distances [standards], and the athlete's position at the selection meet as well as prior events in 2017, various athletes were chosen.
The Meaford Coyotes Track Club had two athletes selected for the meet. Grade 8 student Hailey Abbott was chosen to compete in the Midget Girls 2000m race and Grade 9 student Ethan Pentland was chosen for the Midget Boys 800m event.
