Lakehead’s cross country running teams competed at the U Wisconsin-Eau Clair BluGold invite on Friday, with the men’s team placing 6th (out of 19) and the women’s team a respectable 9th (out of 17).
Kevin Tree finished first among his teammates and 4th overall, running the 10km race in 24:36.9, about 9 seconds off the pace set by the winner, Ian Lamere from UW- Platteville, and 3.5 seconds out of 3rd place in a field of 361 runners.
Marla Keyes (photo left), of Thunder Bay, crossed the finish line first for the Thunderwolves, and 21st overall (out of 305) with a time of 23:16.1, about 60 seconds back of the winner, Lucy Ramquist from UW Eau Clair.
“Overall I thought the weekend went very well,” commented coach Kip Sigsworth. “We are training very hard right now and athletes are tired and a bit banged up but the key at this time of year is to put that all aside and compete with what you have on the day. We did this much better this weekend than last weekend.”
Notable improvements for Lakehead since the Roy Griak the previous weekend were those of Dominique Aulagnon (10th) and Mason Quarrell (36th), while the women’s final three point scorers (Heather Maxfield-62nd, Kayla Gallo-63rd, and Natasha Frank-65th) did a good job of sticking together and urging one another to the finish line.
