Mid-October was a very busy week of cross country racing for the Meaford Coyotes Track Club. With members spanning three counties we also get a good feel of who all is out there for competition AND our Coyotes performed well.
The majority of our high school runners were competing at the Hepworth Saw Mills Trails for the Bluewater Athletic Association XC Championships.
Our top performer there was grade 10 St. Mary's High School student Julia Latham as she comfortably won the Junior Girls 4.6km race on a very tough and hilly course.
Other gold medal performances came from our Collingwood crew at their Area Qualifying Meet in Wasaga Beach.
Will Butwell took top spot in the Grade 8 Boys 3km race and Jack Garbutt also capturing gold in the Grade 6 Boys 2km race.
