Helen Francis Does The Beav Trail 50 km Race


Great day for a run…legs felt a little sluggish but finished just over 5 hrs, 5th overall and a podium finish for the women-3rd! Thx #happytrailsrunning







Track North's Caleb Beland Wins Road to Hope Half


Congratulations to Caleb Beland for his win today at the Hamilton Road2Hope Half-Marathon!
Unfortunately the lead bike took Caleb off course for a bit but he collected himself and still ran an impressive 1:10:45 (3:21 per km). That is Caleb’s second victory on the roads this fall!

Sudbury stars shine at OFSAA cross-country in Uxbridge
Randy Pascal


Lauren Pineau (17th – SG – Lockerby), Shiloh Sauve (22nd – JB – Lo-Ellen) and Misaki Diavolitsis (34th – NG – Lockerby) highlighted a grouping of 15 SDSSAA runners who would crack the top fifty in the traditional OFSSA categories, Riley Cornthwaite reached the Para podium for a second straight year and the Lo-Ellen Park Knights senior boys posted the best result by Sudbury runners in that division in likely three decades or more at provincials as Uxbridge played host to the Ontario high-school cross-country championships on Saturday.

As is so often the case at OFSAA, the order of finish of the locals at both city and NOSSA races did not necessarily hold true as the field increased generally five-fold, across the board, in each and every race.

Shiloh Sauve, Lucia Salmaso (58th – JG – Marymount), Lauren Pineau and Owen Dobson (45th – SB – Lo-Ellen) all stayed true to form from the northern meet in North Bay, while both Isaac Longston (74th – NB – Lockerby) and Misaki Diavolitsis enjoyed breakthrough runs.

“I think this was one of the best races that I have ever ran,” said Diavolitsis, a 14 year old athlete who also competes with the GSSC Impact U15 soccer team. “It was a pretty challenging course. I had a lot of support from Lauren (Pineau) and all of the senior girls, and also my sister (Alissa), so I kind of knew what to expect.”

“But at the same time, it was really different because there were so many people. It was kind of overwhelming at first.”



While Diavolitsis was quick to attest that soccer still ranks ahead of running, the truth is that a very hilly course seemingly played to the strength of a young lady who missed a good majority of the Vikings' workouts, given that they over-lapped with the Lockerby flag football practice sessions.

But while the up and down terrain may have benefitted Diavolitsis, it's certainly not her preference.

"For me, I don't like the hills," she said. "But it's still good to have hills or else it would be really easy for everyone else too. If you're a strong runner and you can run up these hills and not get as tired, then that's what separates the really good ones from the good ones."

Sounds like the Knights' senior boys fall into the "really good" classification.

With Owen Dobson leading way, the south-end powerhouse placed all five runners in the top 110 (in a field of 245), with Nolan Kuhlberg (56th), Kaeden Ward (78th), Jacob Barney (95th) and Liam Lacroix (110th) all playing a role in the team that finished fourth overall.

In fact, the Knights aggregate total of 274 points (top four runners count - goal is to have fewest points) was truthfully a matter of five seconds here or there behind the quartets from silver medal winning Neil McNeil High School (266) in Scarborough and Trinity College School (269), the bronze medal winners from Port Hope.

The Lockerby Composite senior boys also fared quite well, placing 9th with a scoring quartet of Liam Binks, Owen Roney, James Bertrim and Callum Baron/Brandon Roney (separated by a 10th of a second).

Cornthwaite, meanwhile, match his bronze medal performance from one year ago, trailing only Anthony Cigan (St Joseph's Catholic H-S - Windsor) and Matthew Heldsinger (Archbishop Denis O'Connor Catholic H-S - Ajax) as the trio led the way in a grouping of 38 runners.

Following is a complete listing of the results of SDSSAA representatives who managed to crack the top-100 in their division, putting themselves in the top 40% of their classification:

8th - Maren Kasunich* - Manitoulin Secondary - 23:49.00
17th - Lauren Pineau - Lockerby Composite - 24:47.60

* though Kasunich is not a SDSSAA rep, she is a very familiar face at local meets and races

Senior Boys
45th - Owen Dobson - Lo-Ellen Park - 21:36.37
50th - Liam Binks - Lockerby Composite - 21:40.93
56th - Nolan Kuhlberg - Lo-Ellen Park - 21:44.21
