Muskoka Algonquin Runners would like to congratulate the Huntsville Hoyas Cross Country Running Team for their success at the Pre-OFSAA race in Sudbury yesterday. Huntsville’s team of 49 runners stood out both for their performances and how well they represented their school. From here on in, the Hoyas have a race every week until their big race, GBSAA October 23 in Duntroon.
The team performances were lead by second place finishes by our Junior Boy and Senior Girl teams, followed by third place for Midget Girls, fourth place for Junior Girls and 6th place for Midget Boys.
There were also some fabulous individual performances. Each race had 100-140 runners. Emma Mensour and Robyn Goodwin placed 1st and 4th respectively in the midget girls race. Graham Shearing placed 15th in the midget boys race. In the Junior Girl race, Shannon Marshall placed 6th. In the Junior Boys race, Adam Lavigne, Justin Smith and Nathan Johnstone placed 7th, 12th and 17th respectively. Ryley Atwood and Mariah Smith placed 5th and 13th in the Senior Girls race and Josh Stevens placed 20th in the Senior Boys race.
Several runners bravely battled their nerves to get through their first ever high school XC event. Congratulations to all!
The Hoyas next race Wednesday October 2 at the Hoya Hills Invitational at Arrowhead Park beginning at 12:30. Come out and cheer them on!
