Mar 8 2009 - NACAC Cross Country Championships win by Geneviève Lalonde in Florida
Congratulations go out to Geneviève Lalonde of N.B. who, on Saturday representing Canada, dominated the Junior Women's Division finishing in 1st place over 17 seconds ahead of the field. Five other teams took part in this championship race with the Canadian team leading the way.
Also taking part in the championships from our province was SJ Track Club's Barry Britt in the Junior men's race, who finished in 15th place, less than one minute behind the winner. In the Senior race Joël Bourgeois proved once again he is one of the very best distance runners we still have in Canada finishing in 6th place (second Canadian in the race) in the Senior men's race.
As a result of these races Canada will be sending full teams to the World Cross Country Championships in Amman Jordan , later this month.
