Upper Canada College’s cross-country runners returned from the Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario Athletic Association championships at Trinity College School on Wednesday with silver medals for the midget and senior boys teams.
The midget boys team of Max Sipos, Nicholas De Chazal, Ian Vyse, Ethan Mistry and Luke Pitblado finished second and qualified for the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) in Petawawa on Nov. 4. Mistry — who set UCC records in U14 400-metre, 800-metre and 1,500-metre races last May — led the team by winning the race.
The senior boys team of Andrew O’Reilly, Liangchi Zhou, Will McCreadie, Henry Gage, Jeremy Kofman and Jack Tanembaum also placed second to qualify for the OFSAA meet.
Ayomide Maxwell placed eighth in the junior boys race and will run at OFSAA as an individual.
