The RDC cross-country team turned in a solid performance at the annual George McFadzean Memorial cross-country race at RDC Saturday as it continues to prepare for the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference championship.

Jodi Sanguin won the women’s five-kilometre run, although the three Lethbridge College women went slightly off course and ran a little longer distance. Sanguin finished in 21 minutes 29 seconds while Gladys Kochei of Lethbridge came in at 21:30.

“Without the mistake one or more of the Lethbridge runners would have likely moved up, but still I was pleased with our team’s performance,” said RDC coach Brian Stackhouse.

Lethbridge won the women’s team title with 18 points, accumulated from the placings of their top four finishers, while RDC had 39, Augustana University of Camrose 46 and MacEwan 80.

Lethbridge also won the men’s team title, with 13 points with Augustana with 26, RDC 57 and Grande Prairie 86. Willie Kimosop of Lethbridge won the men’s 8.2 km run in 27.13 while teammate Moses Kipkosgei came in at 28:09.

Jon Werkema led the RDC team with an eighth-place finish at 30:39, sixth among college runners. Jon Fuller of Castor ran his first race of the season and turned in a solid 17th-place finish (13th in college) at 33:05. Dustin Fountain was 20th (16th) at 34:37 while Curtis Hargrove 26th (22nd) at 36:33, Kalem Hamilton 32nd (28th) at 37:38, David Smith 43rd (39th) at 39:22 and Steve Gill 45th (41st) at 40:01. All but Werkema and Fountain are first-year members of the team.

The ACAC finals are set for Oct. 31 at RDC.

Brooke Willson was second for the Queens, finishing sixth at 22:46, Melissa Cable was 14th (24:35), Jessica Friesen 18th (24:55), Kate Blackett 32nd (26:43), Elyse Richards 39thy (27:25), Rebecca Fuller 109th (27:26), Breanne Soehn 46th (28:38), Mika Place 48th (29:04), Layla Thordarson 52nd (29:42), Kayla Beaulieu 55th (32:16) and Kaylee Almberg 56th (33:25).
