Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon named conference rookie of the year

Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon blew the doors off in his rookie track and field season for the Simon Fraser University Clan.

The 19-year-old, in his first-year of competition in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference at the NCAA Division II-level, brought home a major award to cap off the shortened season.

Lauzon was named the GNAC male freshman of the year, with several standout performances. He set a GNAC record in the 200m in a time of 21.47 seconds, at an event in Boston. That broke his own record of 21.51 and he was one of only three runners in the conference to break a record in 2020.

Lauzon also won gold in the 200m at the GNAC Championships, finishing in 21.71 seconds.
