The Peterborough Examiner - - SPORTS -

Peter­bor­ough Le­gion Track Club run­ners posted strong re­sults at the first Lake­field Col­lege School cross coun­try meet on Tues­day. Thomas A. Ste­wart’s Anna May won the ju­nior girls race and set a course record, fol­lowed by class­mate Nadiya Linde-Elmhurst. “I’ve been quite sur­prised at how well she re­sponded from her re­cent ill­ness,” said coach Matt Melo. “But then she is a tough com­peti­tor.” The se­nior girls race was also won in record time by Adam Scott’s Molly Strain who won by al­most two min­utes in a strong field. St. Peter’s Au­drey McCarthy was third. “Although all cross coun­try races are ex­hi­bi­tion, club ath­letes rep­re­sent­ing their schools are round­ing into shape,” Melo said. In se­nior boys ac­tion, St. Thomas Aquinas’ Ian Dafoe, a pole vaulter ranked third in Canada, showed his all-round ath­leti­cism with a bronze medal per­for­mance over the six-kilo­me­tre test.
