Nov 22 2017 - New Brunswick athletes ready for National Cross Country Championships

On November 25th, the Canadian national cross-country championships will take place in Kingston, ON. Runners of all ages will congregate to the historic Fort Henry landmark to mix to face off against the best competitors in the country. Once again, team New Brunswick will be well represented on the course in most age categories, holding even a few medal threats.

 

The team is lead by Under-20 runner Laura Dickinson. The confirmed powerhouse from Miramichi, NB, will enter the race shooting for the podium, coming off a remarkable summer of competing. The 2017 Pan-American 5000 metre gold medallist and Canada Summer Games runner-up in the 3000m steeplechase will hope to extend her recent success on the roads to the cross-country course.

 

Sarah Myatt of Fredericton, NB, is expected to contend for a spot in the top 25. The lone senior female competing for New Brunswick is no stranger to national contests. She has represented University of New Brunswick at the CIS/U Sports track and field championship during her varsity career. She is also a multiple time AUS all-star in cross-country.

 

Hannah Trites will be donning the red and green colors in the youth race. Also hailing from Fredericton, she was the runner up at the 2017 NBIAA high school championship. Trites had also competed in the 800 meters at the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg, MB, where she finished in 17th place.

 

On the men’s side, team NB will be led by a well-known duo of Junior athletes: Michael Colford and Brady Graves. The former runs with the University of New Brunswick, and holds a personal best of 8:31 for 3000 meters. The latter is a second year student at the University of Guelph, and holds the New Brunswick outdoor 10 000m record of 31:22. Colford and Graves finished in 8th and 9th in the 1500m at the 2017 Canada Summer Games, respectively, and will look to be competitive in a strong Junior men’s field.

Ian Verschoor, University of New Brunswick’s second finisher at the 2017 AUS cross-country championship (behind Colford) will also be lining up New Brunswick with his varsity teammate, Isaac Cull. Only 18 and originally from Yarmouth, NS, Cull holds a 3000 meter personal best of 9:00. Lars Schwarz, the 2016 & 2017 NBIAA cross-country champion, will keep them on their heels. 

Also competing for the University of New Brunswick are Tyler Adams, Mitchell Spragg, and Dawson Nancekievill.

In the Senior 10km race, Grant Handrigan of Moncton will represent New Brunswick. The former standout at Memorial University is currently a professor at l'université de Moncton. Matt McNeil of Saint John will also compete in the senior race. McNeil has had great success on the cross country courses in recent years and represented Canada at the FISU Cross Country Championships in Italy in 2016.
