Kristine Lalonde at the NCAA's
Alumni hurdler, Kristine Lalonde's Vermont Catamounts are out of the NCAA basketball competition after falling in the second round to Notre Dame 84-to-66. Kristine got three minutes of floor time in that game, tallying an assist and garnering some valuable NCAA tournament experience!
There's a YouTube video on the Vermont squad here - Kristine is #5, and she's interviewed at 4:45 on this season preview video.

By the way, there are six players from Ontario on that team, four of whom are freshman!

Congratulations to Andrew Ellerton, who ran his first race in more than a year and a half, running a 48.2 in the 3rd leg in a 4 x 400m relay at the Arizona State Meet last weekend.

Andrew is now training with Wynn Gmitroski (and Gary Reed) and living in Phoenix and Victoria. He has been off with a navicular bone (foot) fracture but it looks like the foot is ready and that Andrew's new training situation is starting to kick in!
