Cambrian College students participating in the Ontario Technological Skills Competition in Waterloo May 5-7 came home with a little extra luggage.

They won a collective three gold medals, two silvers and a bronze in the following categories:

-Gold: Brandon Petrenko for Heating Systems Technician; Josh Marshall in IT and Network Support; and Jeffrey Cloutier in Welding.

-Silver: Sierra Macdonald-Talbot for Automation and Control; and Mitchell Antler in Industrial Mechanic Millwright.

-Bronze: Chris Gardner for Automation and Control.

“Our successes at this competition demonstrate the expertise and knowledge of our students, as well as our professors,” interim president Sonia Del Missier said, in a press release.

“We’re building a legacy of excellence within our walls, which translates into well-trained employees who contribute in innovative and creative ways to their fields. We are very proud of these results.”

More than 1,900 competitors vied for top spots in more than 60 skilled trade areas.

About 30,000 spectators took in the competition, making the OTSC the largest competition of its kind in Canada. Winners of the provincial championships advance to nationals, which take place June 4-7 in Toronto.
