At WOSSAA on Thursday, October 26, the midget girls cross country team lined up at the start with another 81 girls. The girls ran their heart and soul out, earning the team a third place finish and WOSSAA bronze medals. Leah Johnston placed 9th, and Mackenzie Finch 10th, had they been two spots better they would both have been OFSSA bound.
Many Madill athletes spend their entire high school years trying to earn a HP medal, and possibly a WOSSA medal, and that they did this in their first semester as a Mustang in the first sport of the season. Congratulations.
Steven Schraa, truly runs his heart out, and never looks like he ran the race, at WOSSA he again finished fourth in a much larger and tougher competition. He is OFSSA bound. Congratulations.
Brooke Jez lead her race for the first part, then she was in second and even third heading around the corn field, and at the other side she came out first, leaving her closest competition way behind, you might say in the dust, but it was really muddy. She added another gold medal today to her one from last week, and she is OFSAA bound.
Congratulations to all of the Mustang runners. Many also had exceptional finishes both last week at Huron Perth, and at WOSSAA. This is a phenomenal group; they cheer each other on rain or shine. They head to the tough test part of the course to offer encouragement to their teammates so that they make it up the hill faster and pass the competition. They are there for each other when ribbons and medals are presented and most of the time we are the loudest out of everyone. Congratulations to all team members.
