The Lakehead track team competed at the OUA Track and Field Championships this weekend at York University.
Derek Patterson was second in his section and 11th overall in the men’s 3000m in a personal best time of 8:42.04. Joe McDonough won his section of the men’s 600m and finished 9th overall in a time of 1:22.13.
“Great run by Derek in the 3000m – he ran tough and with confidence and it paid off. He has a bright future ahead of him. I was proud of the way Joe came back from a nagging hamstring injury to finish the season strong. Although we will not be sending any athletes to Nationals for the first time in 7 years, I am happy with the improvement the team has shown over the season. There is a lot of work to do this off season but we are on the right track.” – Coach Sigsworth
