Results - York Classic 2007 - York University, Sat February 3rd.

The Laurentian University women's indoor track team competed at the York Indoor Classic this wekkend, and returned with three medals.

Leila Angrand was a double gold medalist for the second time in two weeks, winning both the 1500m and 3000m. Her times of 5:43.43 and 10:15.39 were personal bests.

"I'm having a lot of fun with indoor track," said Angrand, who is competing indoors for the first time." It's a great atmosphere, and I learn something new every time I race."

Lindsy McNicoll won a silver medal in the 3000m, with a personal best time of 10:42.39.

Leila's 3000m was extremely impressive said head coach, Dick Moss. She front-ran the entire race and looked incrediblly relaxed in running a time that ranks her top-ten in the CIS. And she laid down a tremendous kick over the last two laps to win the 1500m. Her time in that event ranks her in the CIS top-six."

Marnie Smith also turned in an impressive race in the 1500m, winning her heat by half a lap with a personal best by more than five seconds.

"Marnie and Lindsy's times move them closer to the top tier in the OUA and we'll see further improvement over the next two weeks," said assistant coach, Darren Jermyn. "And Meghan Juuti seems to have found her best event in the 1000m."

The meet included teams from York, McMaster, Western, Toronto, Guelph, Laurentian and Windsor.

Laurentian takes next weekend off,then competes in it's final regular-season meet., the U. of Toronto's Hal Brown Invitational, on February 16th.
