Congratulations to our U16 Boys Cross Country team who placed second at the AO Western Ontario XC Championships in London. Competing members of the team were Matthew Kleinsmith, Owen Munnings, Fenway Breckels, Hayden Molnar, Sammy Tonnies, and Sonny Leblanc. Way to go, boys!
Although Legion Nationals was unfortunately cancelled, we had a large number of athletes who achieved national standards in at least one of their events, meaning they would have qualified to compete among the best in the country in Sydney, NS. We did not have any true competitive meets which makes their accomplishment even more outstanding. Congratulations to each of these athletes.
