Cornwall leads MD at Windsor Team Challenge

WINDSOR, Ont. (February 16, 2016) - Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks middle distance runner Adam Cornwall had a record setting race this past weekend to lead his team at the Windsor Team Challenge, hosted by the Windsor Lancers.

Cornwall, a native of St. Mary’s, Ont., ran a blistering time of eight minutes, 20.19 seconds in the 3000m race at the event to win the Hawks lone medal of the meet, a silver. That time was also good enough to set a new school record by nearly nine seconds while also breaking the old track record of 8:22.29 set back in 2002.

Now ranked fifth in the country in the distance, Cornwall missed out on a gold medal by less than a second and finished as the top university runner in the race.

Other notable finishes from the event included Claire Fleming of Londesborough, Ont., finishing fifth in the women’s 3000m race as she clocked a time of 11:03.52 while Bettina Boucher of Whitby, Ont., earned a fourth place finish in the 1500m with a time of 4:56.32.

Laurier will compete in one final race before the OUA Championships in two weeks’ time as they head to Toronto next Saturday, February 20, for the Toronto Last Chance Meet.
