Women XC Team Take Silver at Provincials
The Cross Country Women had a strong showing with a Silver medal. Mikaela York placed 7th, Rachel Mackemzie 10th, Sarah Makowsky 12th and Mackenzie Koopmans 20th.
Leading into the Championships coach Bertil Johansson said, “If we can stay healthy we are in good shape to win.” But by Saturday, Rodgers Komen was injured and did not race, Alex Andres ran with an ankle injury dropping 10 positions, and the men, after dominating every Grand Prix even of the season, ended up tied for second and dropped to third on a tie breaker. Edwin Kaitany continued his individual dominance of the ACAC winning his 5th consecutive race of the season and his first ACAC Gold medal. Kaitany was also named an All Canadian. The teams now are destined for Nationals next week in Ontario.
