Nov 12 2019 - Cormier finishes USPORTS with Top 50 finish

Kingston, Ontario and the Queen’s University Gaels hosted the 2019 USPORTS Cross Country Championships on Saturday, November 9th in what were cold, windy and muddy conditions. Four New Brunswick athletes competed in the National University championships.

On the women’s side, Hannah Cormier, competing for the University of New Brunswick Reds was the top New Brunswicker with a 46th place finish. Cormier, who finished fourth at the AUS Championships two weeks ago was the top AUS female finisher- an impressive feat on the hills of Fort Henry.

Sophie Black of the Univeristé de Moncton Aigles Bleues finished in 92nd over 8km and Kamylle Frenette of the Dalhousie Tigers finished in a respectable 126th.

On the men’s side, Isaac Cull of the University of New Brunswick Reds was the only New Brunswick male to run the 10km race, and finished in an impressive 66th place out of 143. Cull was the second AUS finisher, two positions above his fourth-place finish at the AUS Championships 2 weeks ago.

New Brunswick was well-represented at USPORTS with some great results, and we look now look forward to the Athletics Canada Cross Country Championships in Abbottsford, BC on November 30th, where there’s sure to be a strong contingent from the province.


Nov 8 2019 - NB Athletes at U SPORTS XC Championships

 

Four New Brunswick athletes will be representing their respective Universities at this weekend’s USPORTS National Cross Country Championships in Kingston, Ontario.

Hannah Cormier and Isaac Cull, both of Fredericton running for the UNB Reds will take to the challenging course at Fort Henry on Saturday.

Sophie Black of Moncton will represent the UdeM Aigles Bleues in the 8km Women’s race.

Kamylle Frenette of Dieppe will represent the Dalhousie Tigers.

The Fort Henry course is situated on an exposed hill, so wind could be a huge factor in performances this weekend. It is naturally winding and on a rolling grass surface, composed of small hills and flat sections which could boast some interesting racing. This venue has hosted many national competitions including the Athletics Canada Cross Country Championships.

The Women’s 8km race gets underway at 1pm EST, while the Men’s 10km race gets underway at 2pm EST.

The event will be webcast live, and can be found here: https://usports.live/archives/83200

Best of luck Isaac, Hannah and Sophie!
