While no individual Glengarry District High School athletes ran to results at the October 24 EOSSAA cross-country meet in Petawawa that earned them qualification to OFSAA, collectively, the Gaels achieved results that impressed their head coach, Glen Campbell.
He characterized the results as “a really good day” and the “top overall GD team finish at EOSSAA that I can remember.”
In the team standings, the Gaels placed 5th in novice girls, 6th in junior boys, and 5th in senior girls.
Brianna Bellefeuille was Glengarry’s top novice girl, placing 17th in a field of 86 runners on the 4 km course. She finished with a time of 18 minutes, 53 seconds. Zoe McIntosh, the SD&G champion, placed 26th at EOSSAA (19:37).
In junior boys, Matt Heinzle was 25th on the 5 km course (21:12), and Carl Marfurt-Breakenridge finished 32nd (21:27).
Ella Campbell led the Gaels in the senior girls division, which featured 80 athletes. She completed the 6 km distance with a time of 28 minutes, 53 seconds.
