Skills Ontario - Midland Results  2017

The second round of skills for the welders was in Midland this past weekend. The competitors from Near North (Huntsville to Guelph and Forest to Lindsay) were all bidding for a place in the top three to advance to the Ontario round May 1-3. The level of skill was ramped up as all the competitors had to qualify at earlier regional rounds. Sacred Heart had three welders who qualified from Owen Sound regional skills qualifier. Christian Glass, Nick Kieswetter and Jake Spitzig were all in the shop last week honing their skills. Former skill competitors, Brett Waetcher and Craig Klein came back to pass on some tips and tricks for our three qualifiers to the event. The part had several challenging welds including overhead and several multiple pass welds using various welding techniques. All three made huge improvements in the last few weeks and any one of them could qualify. As per the rules however no more than one student per board and only if they place in the top three at the competition. So first you have to be in the top three and then beat all your teammates. When the weld smoke cleared in Midland, Jake Spitzig was sitting in second and will be representing Sacred Heart High School at the Ontario round. Congratulations to all the welders this year on a job well done and good luck to Jake as he continues to prepare for the Ontario round.

In welding Nick Kieswetter, Christian Glass, Jake Spitzig and Elijah Warner had to fabricate a complicated part using blueprint reading skills and stick and mig multi-positional welding techniques.
