(CHARLOTTETOWN, PE) Hannah Cormier was the top UNB Reds finisher in the first Atlantic University Sport women’s cross country race of the 2018 season.
Cormier finished 19th in the five kilometre event which was won by Dalhousie’s Michelle Reddy, in a time of 19:20. Cormier ran the event in 20:32.
“Hannah was very controlled throughout the race, which bodes well for her progression this season,” said Reds head coach Chris Belof.
Other Reds finishers were Emma Towers 32nd, Natasha Vatcher 38th, Jill Lamb 42nd, Amelia Welch 43rd, Jana Giles 47th, Emmanuelle Martin 52nd, Abigail Evans 60th, and Grace Weaver 67th.
“None of our top five raced in a Reds singlet last year,” said Belof. “A realistic goal for the year is being one of the top four teams in the conference and we did that today. There is work that needs to be done, in advance of the AUS Championships, to stay in the top four.”
The next event on the AUS schedule is this weekend’s St FX Invitational, in Antigonish, NS.
