West Conference Championships

The Senior Races were the talk of the day at the West Conference Cross Coutnry Championships.

Nepean's Senior Girls had a dominating performance placing all four scorers in the top 8, for the low team score of the day (21) and the largest margins of victory, 48 points ahead of runner up Franco Ouest, who was lead by individual Champ Emma Galbraith who ran to a 1:28 victory (19:27) over Nepean's Ruth Burrows.

In the Men's race, Yves Sikubwabo (above) defeated last years OFSAA JB silver medallist, Adam Palamar of Merivale, by 1:29 in a blistering course record time of 22:37 (old record 23:50, 2006) and led Glebe to a 29 - 43 victory over Merivale. Sikubwabo, a Rwandan refugee who came to Canada for the World Junior Track and Field Championships in July, only started school this past week, but made an immediate impression on all in attendance with his smooth stride and the huge smile he wore on his face the entire race.

Glebe Collegiate won the Girls, Boys and Overall Aggregates titles.
