Yes way, Houlzet

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - – Sean Bray

Glen­garry DHS grad­u­ate Matthew Houlzet, now a stu­dent-ath­lete at Flem­ing Col­lege in Peter­bor­ough, has qual­i­fied for the na­tional col­lege cross­coun­try run­ning cham­pi­onships, along with his Knights team­mates.

Last week­end, they ran in the OCAA ( provin­cial) meet in Scar­bor­ough, on an 8 km course. Houlzet placed 48th over­all, fourth on his team, with a time of 31 min­utes, 16.2 sec­onds. He says his re­sult “wasn't amaz­ing, but we like to think that time is ir­rel­e­vant in XC. The course was very tac­ti­cal, with it be­ing four laps of two kilo­me­tres, with tons of short, steep hills and tight cor­ners that you would hit dozens of times by the end of the race.”

He and his Knights will com­pete at the CCAA (na­tional) cross­coun­try run­ning cham­pi­onships, en­ter­ing ranked 14th na­tion­ally. The meet is sched­uled for this week­end, at Seneca Col­lege, north of Toronto.
