June 2, 2021 – Thunder Bay, ON

The Lakehead Track & Field/Cross-Country team is pleased to announce Aiden Webster of C.W. Jefferys’ Collegiate Institute in Toronto as an addition to it’s 2021-2022 class. Webster is a former OFSAA Bronze Medalist in the 800m who boasts incredible event versatility ranging from 400m all the way up to the 1500m.

“I chose Lakehead because of the academic and athletic environments at the school. Having smaller class sizes means a lot to me and I’m looking forward to being a part of one of Canada’s top universities.” said Webster. “Being a part of Lakehead’s Track/XC team gives me the ability to continue growing as an athlete as well as taking part in more high level competitions.” 

Some of Webster’s athletic accomplishments include a Bronze Medal at the prestigious OFSAA Championships in 2018 (800m), as well as 5th place finish in the 400m final at the same competition. Additionally, Webster holds personal bests of 1:58s (800m), 1:23s (600m) and 51s (400m). 

“We are delighted that Aiden has decided to join Lakehead,” said Interim Head Coach Joe McDonough. “Aiden is a great talent who has an incredible event range and will be able to contribute to our team across the board – I’m excited to work with Aiden and see what he can do as a Thunderwolf!”
