    "how can someone in this day and age run ofsaa in there 5th year??"


    Nothing new... Are we missing something?

    Kids come back to up their marks, decide what they would like to do with their future, (these ‘someones’ in their 5th year could also be 17 &18 years old)etc,,, Remember, the kids in their 5th year this year, have had to compete with kids in their 5th year in previous years!!!

    Someone competing in their 5th year is obviously ruffling your feathers!! Good luck to them and all the other extremely talented senior runners!

    Why is the focus of all talks centered around the male athletes? As far as times, these results are pretty standard from 1 year to the next (looking back over the past 30 to 40 years). That is not to diminish what these boys can do but the girls times and depth are the more impressive and yet they get little air time. It is about time to not only have equal distances but equal recognition. So, let's here some girls predictions and don't just tell the obvious, Cameron Ormond will win senior girls gold

    I'd also put Matt Larkin in the mix too, seems to have good speed (1:53 for 800m and good endurance 8:53 3000m as well as a 3:55 1500m)

    As great as he is over 400/800 I don’t think it is realistic to think, over 6 km, he will even be close to the front (I would be happy to be wrong) to use his speed. Same with Nick Young, great over 800/1500, but just not an endurance, 6km, guy. Again, would be happy to be wrong.
    It will be exciting, with some great talent willing to hammer.

    Those are grade 10 times? The 800 and 1500 times seem especially fast for a grade 10.

    Larkin shut down his track season early to focus on xc, so expect him to be the top grade 11.

    Joe Fast also posted times of 1:55, 3:55 and 8:38 as a grade 10 this year. He and Larkin are the clear class of the grade 11's.

    Mota, in my books, is the class of the field, but it I think there will be a fairly large lead pack, unless Free does his thing. He's pretty new and raw and is not afraid to push it hard and early. Let's hope he doesn't "learn" too much and continues to run fueled by passion.

    It's never over 'til it's over, but lets face it, the SG race is over - Ormond. (that's what was said about the Glebe SG last year until Weston pulled out, so, I guess we have to continue to speculate). Tuck, Knaflec, DeKay, Ford and Miller are all returning - all top 10 as grade 11's last year.. Tuck always runs well during the fall harrier season and has to be considered. Ford had a pretty solid summer.

    Of the grade 11's, I think only Workman has the ability to run with the big girls.

    My prediction for Senior Boys XC rn is:

    1. Evan Burke - absolute beast 8:23 3k, enough said
    2. Nick Mota - Crazy good XC runner, always shows up for OFSAA
    3. Carter Free - Could win most years, but will not drop the two ahead of him when he front runs
    4. Foster Malleck - Good range with 1 54 and 8 28 and will just keep on improving
    5. Matt Larkin - Much improving 3 55 runner, determined to do well at OFSAA XC
    6. Joe Fast - 2 OFSAA XC golds 8 38 3k
    7. Noah Costa - Good Steeplechaser and a 3 55 1500 is pretty good
    8. Joshua Zelek - Has been a fairly consistent XC performer 3 55 8 33?
    9. Santiago Gaitan - Has one of the better 3k PR's of 8 33
    10. Scott Arndt - 7th last year in Sr Boys, probably should be higher actually

    Honorable Mentions to: Dakota Goguen, Jake Hollinger, Matt Lampard, Aiden Jean, Tristen Jones, Chase Canty

    Also a lot can change in the pre season along with injuries and sickness

    Not sure if Mota is injured or disinterested in track with most recent Nat track time results. But he's a better XC runner anyways so he could rally back. But imo there is no clear favorite this year, and should be a more exciting race to watch.

    Burke, Free, Malleck are the most improved year over year. Zelek will be running very motivated, Arndt is a grinder and could be up there. Fast likely top 11 but not in top 3.

    I agree with Fitz that St Mary's Kitchener will likely be stronger than last years team. Also Sir John A Macdonald SS will have a very good SG team. Hopefully they will give KCVI a run for their money. The above are probably the top senior teams from CWOSSA. WCI silver in JG for 2017, will also have a strong SG team.
