Difficult X-country course fails to deter local high-schoolers

As if high winds and muddy conditions weren`t enough to deal with at the East Conference high school cross-country championships on Wednesday, Oct. 17 the competitors also had to cope with three sets of hay bales, each one nearly four feet height.

That might not seem like a big deal to some of the lanky competitors in the senior boys division, but it did present a challenge for some of the more diminutive runners in the female divisions and the midget boys race.

One person who used it to her advantage was Katie Newlove from St. Peter High School, who effortless scrambled over the bales despite measuring just over five feet tall.

"I knew Emma was struggling over the bales, so I made my move on the last two piles and managed to open up a gap on her,"said Newlove who covered the six-kilometre Hornet's Nest course in a time of 25:30.77 over Emma Betty from Lisgar Collegiate.

Newlove's performance is made that more impressive considering she is coming off an injury that has limited her training for the past eight months.

Newlove finished first in the junior division at last year's East Conference meet, but could do no better than third at the city championships a week later. She did manage to get over her disappointment to finish fifth at last year's OFSAA provincial championships.

Newlove is hoping for another top three performance at next week's city championships, which will also take place at Walter Baker Park in Kanata. The OFSAA championships will present a much tougher challenge considering she is competing as a first year senior against many girls who are a year older than she is.

Will Cox is also hoping for a good result next week. The Colonel By Secondary School student won the senior boys race at the Hornet's Nest in a time of 21:45.48. De La Salle's Zachary Meredith was a minute and a half behind and fellow Colonel By runner Stuart Jones was third.

In other races, Miguel Robichaud from École secondaire Garneau finished second in the junior boys division; Tristan Trudel from École secondaire Béatrice-Desloges placed second in the midget boys race; and Paige Saravanamuttoo from Colonel By finished third in the midget girls division.

In the team competition, Colonel By won the midget girls, midget boys and senior boys divisions, and came in second in the senior girls division.
