Cambrian runner a favourite heading to provincials
by Randy Pascal

Against all odds, Mary Strain is proving to be even more dominant within the OCAA cross-country circles than fellow Cambrian representative Emily Marcolini was one year ago.

Like her predecessor, Strain has staked out her spot as provincial favourite, capturing her second win in as many races over the weekend in Sault Ste Marie. Covering the five kilometer course in a time of 18:26, Strain easily outpaced second place finisher Jenelle Hanna (19:51), a former member of the Guelph Gryphons cross-country team.

In fact, Strain’s closest OCAA rival arrived another 17 seconds later, as Kaitlin Shuvera of Humber registered a time of 20:08. Over on the men’s side, Josh Murphy represented the local hopes on the 8 km circuit, finishing in 50th place in a time of 31:55.

William Chemo of Centennial took top spot, edging Riley Olesky of Fleming in a photo finish, with both runners credited with a finishing time of 26:41. The cross-country crew are back in action on October 15th, heading south as Seneca College plays host to the penultimate race leading to provincials, welcoming athletes to King’s Campus.

The same venue is also to be used for the OCAA Championships on October 29th, while qualifiers to nationals will return to Sault Ste Marie (Crimson Ridge Golf Course) on the weekend of November 11th and 12th for the CCAA Championships.
