MDIST Sheridan wins gold at York Open

TORONTO (February 1, 2016) - Wilfrid Laurier middle distance runner Joe Sheridan captured gold in the 3000m race at the York Open, hosted by the York Lions, to highlight the Golden Hawks' results this past weekend.

Sheridan, a second year native of Kitchener, Ont., topped the field of 10 runners thanks to a time of eight minutes, 49.71 seconds. That mark was nearly two seconds faster than his nearest competitor and helped the Hawks runner bring home his second career track and field medal at the University level. 

Sheridan also won gold in the event at the Guelph Last Chance Meet a year ago but was nearly 37 seconds faster in Toronto than he was a year ago to set a new personal best time.

Laurier’s only other Top 10 finish at the event came courtesy of Adam Cornwall of St. Mary’s, Ont. The fifth year runner placed sixth in the 1500m race, clocking in at 4:00.21.

As for the Laurier women, their top result of the weekend came from Bettina Boucher of Whitby, Ont., as the first year runner placed 11th in the 1500m in a time of 5:03.87.

The Hawks will continue preparations for the OUA Championship in two weekend’s time when they head down to Windsor for the Windsor Team Challenge.
