Senior runners lead the way at TCS Harriers Meet

Under sunny skies, Trinity College School’s runners welcomed peers from around the province to the annual TCS Harriers Meet on Wednesday, September 21st. The Senior boys and girls teams led the way for the Bears, placing second and fourth, respectively, in this early season event.

More than 500 athletes from 35 schools brought energy and spirit to the TCS campus as they competed throughout the day. The Novice girls kicked things off, with Abby Richards posting the top result for TCS, in 16th place. Ayla Wilson also placed in the top-50, landing in 37th spot. In the Novice boys event, top-50 finishes were earned by Caden Keystone (37th) and Michael Hassard (49th).

Charlotte Patterson had an outstanding run, crossing the finish line 11th in the Junior girls race. Shout-out to Reina Chen for her 40th-place finish. Ryan Smith-Hernandez posted the Bears’ best Junior boys result, coming in 38th.

It was our Senior runners who shone – not only posting stellar results, but also leading their younger teammates by example. The Senior girls’ fourth-place finish came from the combined results of TianTian Dong (28th), Avery Vrooman (32nd), Dagna Jezioro (33rd) and Nina Gardes (36th). The Senior boys team of Liam Gibson (10th), Aidan Small (11th), Andrew Richards (12th) and Liam Small (28th) earned well-deserved silver medals.

Congratulations to all of the TCS runners. For some athletes, this was their first ever large cross-country meet, and for many others it was their first meet in three years. Their determination to persevere and their eagerness to support one another as teammates was wonderful to witness.

A word of thanks to the many volunteers who worked to make the day such a success!
