“Laurentian Indoor Track Team Embraces Last Chance Opportunity in Ottawa”

The Laurentian University Indoor Track and Field team competed in its final regular season competition this weekend in Ottawa at the Carleton University Last Chance Track and Field Meet. The meet served as a final opportunity for athletes to improve their marks prior to the Ontario University (OUA) Championships which will be held in Windsor, on February 23rd and 24th.

It was a solid day for the Voyageurs as they collected two medals and set fourteen personal bests. Twelve athletes eclipsed the OUA qualifying standard in their respective events.

The team was once again led by Heidi Tuszkiewicz (Ajax, ON) who claimed gold in the Women’s 1500 metre event, setting a new personal best of 4 minutes 36.26 seconds. Teammate Megan Crocker (Mississauga, ON), finished just a second behind Tuszkiewicz to claim silver in 4:37.43 seconds, eclipsing her own personal best by seven seconds.

A trio of local Sudbury products turned in 4th place finishes. Caleb Beland in the men’s 1000m (2:33.47), Liam Passi in the men’s’ 3000m race (8:44.94) and Skylar Savage-Perreault in the men's 60m sprint (7.12). Each of these performances were personal bests and qualified the trio to compete at the provincial championship next weekend.

“We asked our athletes to embrace the last chance theme of the meet and apparently they listened” commented Associate Head Coach, Darren Jermyn. “We now have 14 athletes qualified for the OUA Championships next weekend. That is the largest squad Laurentian has sent to OU’s in the past twenty years, so we are excited for both the athletes and the program as a whole. We’ve worked hard to develop a program that supports the sprints right through to the distance events and that work is now paying dividends.”
