The Lakehead Cross Country teams competed in the Queen’s University Invitational this past weekend where the men’s team placed 3rd overall.
“Mixed results today – some really strong runs but as a team we can and need to have everyone run their best on the same day,” commented Coach Sigsworth.
Gavin Shields (20) led his team finishing at 26:12 and Tyler White (23) following in at 26:29. Derek Patterson (25) and Joseph McDonough (27) came in just after at 26:38 and 26:43.
The women’s team did not race a full team but successfully competed individually with Heather Maxfield finishing 22 overall with a time of 31:38. Kayla Gallo (30) finished in 32:31 and Natasha Frank (41) not far behind ran in at 34:49.
“Heather Maxfield had a great run today – her best ever cross country race. She has improved steadily over the year.”
“Two week until the OUA Champs, two weeks for each athlete to get ready to produce their best result of the season.”
The teams will now train and prepare for the tough competition they will face at the OUA Championships on October 30th.
