Laurentian Women's Cross-Country Running Team competed at the Don Mills Open cross-country running meet this Saturday, and came away with two medals and a 5th place team finish.
Last year's OUA Rookie of the Year, Leila Angrand of Sudbury, placed first in the university division with a time of 14:42 over the 4 kilometre course. The bronze medal was won by rookie Kirsty Dolson of Orillia, with a time of 15:22. She was followed by three more rookies, Marnie Smith of Sault Ste Marie, 40th in 16:47, Jennie Oliver of Perth, 49th in 17:03 and Nina Spadafore of Timmins, 58th in 17:50. Melanie Muise of Sudbury, competing as an open athlete in this event, placed 56th overall in 16:50.
Said Coach, Dick Moss, "We were missing three of our four vets today, but our rookies ran extremely well in their first race against other OUA teams. Leila looks like she's picking up where she left off last year, and it was tremendous debut for Kirsti Dolson."
