Tuesday October 20th was a very busy day of racing for the grade 1-8 Meaford Coyotes under comfortable and cloudy conditions.  

Most of the Grade 1-8's competed at the BWDSB "Base Race" in Meaford, with others in the Simcoe District competing at Mount. St. Louis Moonstone.  

“Many of our team had just raced against very tough competition in Burlington three days prior and had not quite recovered, but all of our team had fantastic results,” said team coach Kevin Hooper.

The Coyotes are now peaking for the MTA Provincial Cross Country Championships in Etobicoke against Ontario's top young distance runners on Saturday, October 24.  

“We are taking our largest team ever of 37 members with high expectations of many strong individual and team performances,” said Hooper.
