You can see a description of the meet at the LU website at:

Even better, you can see excerpts of Leila's silver medal race on YouTube, including some neat surges and moves on the curb. Be sure to watch the final two laps, as St. FX's Erin McLean pulls away by 25 meters, then is caught by Leila on the homestretch. The link is below:
