Feb 24 2015 - 2015 Subway AUS Championships

 

AUS Track and Field Championships set for this weekend

The 35th AUS Track & Field Championships are set for this Saturday and Sunday (February 28th-March 1st) at the Vance-Toner Stadium in the CEPS on the Université de Moncton campus.  Teams from eight Atlantic universities will be represented by over 200 athletes; New Brunswick universities in action will include the University of New Brunswick, l’Université de Moncton, St Thomas University, and newcomer Mount Allison University.

 

Many of ANB's top athletes are set to compete, hoping for medal positions and CIS qualifying performances.  Stephanie Doiron of Colette, representing l’Université de Moncton, is ranked 2nd in the AUS and 4th in the country in the high jump.  She will also contest the pentathlon and 60m hurdles.  Naomie Maltais of Val D’Amour , also from les Aigles Bleues, is ranked first in the AUS in the shot put and the weight throw, in which she leads by over 4 meters and is currently ranked 7th in Canada.  Sara Taplin of Moncton, competing for Dalhousie, is the favorite in both the 60m hurdles and the triple jump.  She currently is ranked 8th in the CIS for the triple jump.  Sarah Myatt of Fredericton, competing for UNB, is currently ranked first in the 600m in the AUS by over 3 seconds, and will be looking to win her fourth AUS title in the event.  She is currently ranked 14th in the CIS.

 

Rookie Sydney MacDonald of Miramichi, representing UNB and who holds the New Brunswick Junior record in Pentathlon, will eschew the combined event in search of team points in the individual events to help her team.  Sydney will compete in 5 individual events over the two days, including 60m, 60m hurdles, long jump, high jump, and shot put.  Another rookie, Shawna McKayof Moncton, competing for Dalhousie, is set to compete in the 60m and 300m, where she is currently ranked 2nd in the conference and 18th in the country, and as a member of the Dalhousie 4x200m relay team presently ranked 8th in Canada.  Bridget Brennan of Beechwood, competing for St. FX, is also set to compete in the 300m, as well as the long jump.  She comes in ranked third in the 300m and second in the long jump.  Brennan is also part of StFX 4x400m relay teams that is currently ranked 4th in Canada.

On the men’s side, UNB’s Daniel Brown of Hampton is currently ranked 3rd in the conference for both the 300m and 600m.  And while Brown is ranked 3rd in the 300m this season, he has yet to lose in head-to-head competition against anyone in the AUS.  Matt McNeil of Saint John, running for Dalhousie, is favoured in the 3000m, in which he is ranked first in the AUS and 15th in the CIS.  He is also competing in the 1500m where he is currently ranked 4th in the conference.  Brandon Cleghorn of Salisbury, wearing the red of UNB, comes into the Championships being ranked 3rd in both the high jump and long jump.  Teammate Kyle Lefort of Cheticamp is the defending champion in the pentathlon, in which he also finished 10th at last year’s CIS Championships.  Kyle will also be medal contender in the 60m hurdles and the high jump.

The men’s throwing events are deep this year, with many possible medalists.  Jonathan Gionet of Petit Rocher is currently ranked 2nd in the men’s shot put and could become St. Thomas’ first ever individual medalist at the AUS Championships.  First year Luke Dillman of Fredericton will be representing UNB in the weight throw, where he is ranked first, and the shot put, where he is ranked 3rd in the AUS.  His teammate Brad Carragher, also of Fredericton, was last year’s bronze medalist in the weight throw and is right behind him, presently ranked 3rd.  Another Frederictonian, David Kerr will be representing Dalhousie in the weight throw where he is currently ranked 2nd in the AUS.  And Aaron LeBlanc of Memramcook, representing Moncton, will look to play spoiler in both the shot put, where he is ranked 4th, and the weight throw, where he is ranked 5th.  There is sure to be plenty of excitement in the throwing circle!

“It’s great to see so many New Brunswick athletes among the best university athletes in the Atlantic provinces,” said Gabriel LeBlanc, technical director of Athletics New Brunswick.  “The progress of New Brusnwick’s three universities the past few years is simply incredible.  It’s giving more athletes an option to continue and excel in our sport.”

The weekend will also feature some open competitions on Saturday afternoon, with many excellent athletes from across the Maritimes testing their legs in a full slate of events.  Top NB athletes competing will include Alexa-Maude Mallais in the 60m, Jason MacKenzie in the high jump, and Pierre Landry in the long jump.  The Championships start at 10am at the CEPS and go until 5pm on Saturday.  Action continues on Sunday, starting at 9am and wrapping up by 1pm.  You can also catch the action live on the internet.  As well, the event can be watched live through the AUS TV website (www.austv.ca).


Feb 22 2015 - PanAmerican XC Champs

Pan-American Cross Country Cup

Barranquilla, Columbia

February 22nd, 2015

 

With an average daily temperature of thirty-one degrees Barry Britt and Ryan Cassidy temporarily traded the cold Canadian winter for the heat of Barranquilla, Columbia as they took part in the 2015 Pan-American Cross Country Cup as members of Team Canada.

 

 

Ryan Cassidy of Grand-Digue finished in 35th place overall and was the 4th Canadian finisher.  He covered the 8km course in 31:55.

Barry Britt of Hampton did not finish the race for reasons still unknown at the time of writing but given the intense heat it is speculated that this had something to do with it.

“Making a national team is extremely difficult and to have Ryan and Barry both make yet another national team is a huge accomplishment.  Everyone in New Brunswick should be proud of their achievements,” said HP Coach Jason Reindl. 

Unfortunately the Canadian men’s senior team failed to finish 5 men and thus did not register a team score.  The United States finished first, Ecuador second, and Columbia third.

Notable results for Canada include:

*Junior Women’s team finishing first overall (24pts) ahead of the USA in second (27pts).  Hannah Woodhouse finished 2nd and Branna MacDougall in 3rd. 

*1st place for Canadian, Justyn Knight, in the junior men’s race leading the team to a second place finish behind the United States and ahead of Brazil. 

*Senior women’s team finished 2nd overall behind USA.

Feb 18 2015 - Britt and Cassidy off to Colombia

Two New Brunswickers among Team Canada at The Pan-American Cross Country Cup this weekend

Barry Britt of Hampton and Ryan Cassidy of Grand-Digue will wear the red and white this weekend as they represent Team Canada at the Pan-American Cross Country Cup in Barranquilla, Colombia. Both will compete in the 8km Senior Men’s race, taking place Sunday, February 22nd.

We were able to reach both athletes.  Barry before he left and he had this to say:

‘’Anytime I get the chance to compete for Canada I get extremely excited. Even more so this year that NACAC has expanded to PAN AM Cup and the race will be bigger. I've been 4th twice at this championships meet before and I would like to improve on that placement and be top 3. I would also like to give our senior men’s team the best chance we can to win the team competition with my individual performance. The course from what our staff has told us is not going to be a walk in the park but I think that will play to my strengths.’’

Ryan had this to say:

“As Barry said, we have a chance at getting the senior men's title, and if we all do our part and outperform the Americans, we'll be standing on the very top of that podium. My goal for this meet is to give it a hard go in preparation for Worlds to see how I stand in terms of fitness this winter. I typically struggle with the heat but I'm going to try and make that a thing of the past and maybe try and squeeze by for a medal if I feel okay near the end.”

Both athletes competed at this event last year, with Britt the first Canadian to cross the line, finishing 4th overall. Unfortunately, Cassidy was unable to finish the race due to a foot injury, but will be looking for a strong finish this year after another great cross country season. Canada finished second behind the United States in the team competition at last year’s event.

"With both of these New Brunswick athletes having already made several national teams, it comes as no surprise that they have qualified for the event again this year,” said Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "Ryan and Barry are leaders on the Canadian running scene, and I am confident they will be very competitive."

After this competition, both Cassidy and Britt will represent Canada at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, taking place in Guiyang, China on March 28th, 2015.


Feb 17 2015 - New Brunswick Well Represented at Canadian Indoor Championships

Last year, 15 NB athletes attended the Championships and brought home 9 medals.  Expectations are high for this year as we send an outstanding group of athletes.  NB athletes to keep an eye on include: Alexondra Kiely of Fredericton, ranked first in Junior women’s 800m; Brady Graves of Saint John and Andrew LeBlanc of Fredericton, ranked first and second respectively in Youth boys’ 1500m; Graves is also the top seed in the boys 3000m; Sara-Eve Noel of Allardville ranked first in Youth girls’ weight throw; Laura Dickinson of Miramichi, ranked 3rd in Youth girls’ 3000m; Victoria LeBlanc of aint John, ranked 3rd in Junior women’s long jump; Liam Turgeon of Tide Head, ranked 3rd in Junior men’s shot put; Anthony Cormier of Saint John, ranked 3rd in Junior men’s triple jump; Sophie Black of Diepppe, ranked 3rd in Youth girls’ pentathlon; and, Clint Steeves of Riverglade, ranked 4th in the Youth boys’ long jump.

 

“This year, we have a really big group of New Brunswick athletes travelling to Montreal for the Championships, and I think some excellent chances at medals in many different events,” stated Steve LeBlanc, Director of High Performance for Athletics New Brunswick.  “We, as a province, are really starting to make an impact on the national scene, and I expect big things from this group,” added LeBlanc.  “We are no longer content to just attend these kinds of events – we are going there to win medals.”
