UPEI Cross Country team to attend first AUS Championship

Charlottetown, PEI (October 30, 2015)— The UPEI Cross Country team looks forward to competing in its first-ever AUS Cross Country Championship this weekend at Odell Park in Fredericton, N.B. The men's and women's teams have been working hard all season long and are excited about the opportunity to compete against the top runners in Atlantic Canada.

On the women's side, the Panthers will be sending two Nursing students, Rebecca Doyle and Jenna Pye, to the 6 km event.

On the men's side, the team will be led by Andrew Wong and Brandon Higginbotham, who have both had solid results throughout the season. Jeremy Thompson, Alec Brown, Steve Seviour, Patrick Fletcher, and Dylan Terstege will also follow up on strong season-long showings at the 10 km championship event.

Coach Mike Peterson says, "Since we only came together as group in August, I am very proud of our student-athletes. The squad is doing very well and is competitive. We welcome newcomers as the goals for next year are lofty."
