Cham­plain On The Podium

Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke, Lennoxville

On Satur­day the Cham­plain Cougars cross coun­try team took part in the first com­pe­ti­tion of the North-East Di­vi­sion of the RSEQ (réseau des sports étu­di­ants du Québec). This young team (third year in ex­is­tence) per­formed at the height of its goals.

The girls fin­ished 5th out of 20 teams in the first race of the Di­vi­sion that was held in Trois-Riv­ières. Only nine small points sep­a­rated them from 4th place. The ex­cel­lent per­for­mance of Meg­gie Dar­gis on the 3rd step of the podium should be noted (see photo)! The three other point mark­ers fin­ished in 31st place (Marianne Cou­ture), 40th place (Fred­erique Taschereau) and 42nd place (Marianne Pelo­quin).

The men fin­ished 11th in the team com­pe­ti­tion at Trois-Riv­ières. The best per­former fin­ished in 24th po­si­tion (Yas­sine Nas­siri) out of 140 run­ners.

The team will take part in the 2nd com­pe­ti­tion of the RSEQ in Sher­brooke next Satur­day (base de plein air An­dré-Nadeau) and the con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship will be held in Québec on Oc­to­ber 4.
