Middle Distance Team gets off to a Fast Start
The Setting

The Laurier Indoor Middle Distance team opened its season on the University of Toronto campus. The 2010 Nike Sharon Anderson Memorial Track Meet is an annual meet that the University of Toronto hosts. The athletes competed on the 200 meter indoor track and focused primarily on the 1,500 meter event.

The Competition

The meet was primarily for university competition, however it did allow club teams and individual athletes to compete. Athletes from the University of Toronto, University of Guelph, McMaster University, and the University of Waterloo competed for the 1,500 meter title.

The Team

Catherine Sukkau was the first athlete from Laurier to take to the start line. This was Catherines first race and she finished 19th overall, a great experience and starting point for her season. Next to race was Gary Storey who finished 4th in his heat as he gave a great effort, especially over the last 200 meters. Gary finished 26th overall. Finally the Ikram Twins went to the line against a stacked field. The boys raced hard and held their own finishing 10th and 19th respectively. Sohaib Ikram set a school record running 4:04.08

The Coachs thoughts

"This was a good start for the athletes. It was the first race of the season and they should all be pleased."

Then Next one up

Laurier will return to action on January 23rd back on the campus of the University of Toronto for the Fred Foote Meet. The team will use the next two weeks to improve on strength and conditioning.
