Rebecca's Hockey Adventures

Rebecca Johnston had a super tournament against the Americans, scoring one goal and an assist, and helping the Canadian Under-22 team to win two games to one (and they only lost the one game in OT).

Rebecca apparently so impressed Hockey Canada that she's been invited to the senior team camp, where she will again be the youngest player (she's only 16). She's at the senior camp as we speak. Good luck Becca!

Rebecca Makes National Hockey Team

Congratulations to Rebecca Johnston. Less than a month after almost making Canada's national team for the World Junior Track and Field Championships in Beijing (she missed by only 2/10s of a second), Rebecca has cracked the National Under-22 HOCKEY team. Only 16 years old, Rebecca is the youngest member of the team by more than a year.

Hamilton Indoor Games Results

Hamilton Spectator Games

Kaitlyn Tallman finished 3rd in the Open Girls 1500m event on the "boards" (146m indoor track) at the Hamilton Indoor Games finishing in a time of 4:52.11.

Track North's Woods Wins OUA Indoor Track Gold

Track North Athletic Club's Madeleine Woods, competing for the University of Windsor, ran to a gold medal at the Ontario University (OUA) Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend in Windsor.

Woods, a third year Kinesiology student, posted a winning time of 1 minute 32.22 seconds. This result ranks Woods first in the Canadian Inter-University (CIS) rankings. Woods also finished 4th in the 1000m event with a final time of 2 minutes 56.08 seconds.

Track North coach, Darren Jermyn, commented, "Madeleine has taken her running to a whole new level. She had a breakthrough season last summer as she made the transition to running middle distance, but this result is simply incredible. She went into this meet as the number one seed and obviously handled the pressure well - not only did she win gold, but she ran 2 seconds faster than her previous best over the distance."

Track North's Tammy Dufresne, also competing for the University of Windsor, finished 6th in the 600m event in a time of 1 minute 36.70 seconds and was also a member of the gold medal winning 4 X 400m and 4 X 800m relay teams.

Woods and Dufresne will now compete at the CIS Championships to be held in Saskatoon, March 9th through 11th.
